Contribute to the Day

One way to actively contribute to this year’s Vice-Chancellor’s Symposium is to prepare an A1 poster that illustrates your response to the question:

• How are we defining ourselves as 21st Century scholars?

These posters will be at the core of this year's Symposium. They will be a key feature during the morning programme where presenters will get a chance to explain and discuss their ideas to delegates. Substantial prizes including an iPad will be awarded for the best and most thought-provoking posters.You may find it useful to plan the design of your poster using the Powerpoint template below.
