Healthcare Org 1, 4.05 (R) [INFO] Topic 2. Generate An Effective Electronic Poster

Topic 2. How do you generate an effective electronic file poster suitable for presentation and printing for the Lesson Four course assignment?

The electronic poster file is an artifact of the course which you can circulate to colleagues or use for a talk or presentation event. In constructing your poster, you are going to do so from the perspective of the chief healthcare administrator for your organization. You are describing your organization to an audience.

It is a nine (9) question quiz asking whether you have incorporated the 9 required template/design characteristics into your poster. The passing score for the quiz is 100 percent because you should develop each of the required 9 template/design items for the poster in order to meet the template/format requirements of the electronic poster assignment. This section discusses: Required Template/Design Characteristics for the Electronic Poster Electronic Poster Design and Technical Resources Printing Your Poster Resources (If You Should Need to Print a Poster in the Future) Required Template/Design Characteristics for the Electronic Poster The basic template/design for the electronic poster for Lesson Four is a scientific research poster (as opposed to an advertising poster). For the purposes of this course, there are nine (9) required format characteristics of the template/design. Beyond these nine characteristics, you are free to choose your own template/design for your poster. The nine characteristics are: Required Template/Design Characteristic 1. The electronic poster is one slide (e.g., one PowerPoint slide) Required Template/Design Characteristic 2. The page size (page setup) of the slide is 48 inches (width) by 36 inches (height); landscape orientation . The standard page size of a PowerPoint slide is 10 inches (width) by 7.5 inches height); landscape orientation. Note: this is the printing size of the slide/poster; you do not work electronically with a slide that is 48 inches by 36 inches or 10 inches by 7.5 inches. Required Template/Design Characteristic 3. The poster design layout has sufficient space between the content (i.e., text, graphics, images); that is, there is sufficient “white space” so the poster does not appear cluttered. Required Template/Design Characteristic 4. There is a border (white space) around the edge of the poster which serves as a frame for the poster content; content does not continue to the very edge of the slide/poster. Required Template/Design Characteristic 5. One font-type is used for the entire poster. The chosen font-type is easily readable and not distracting from the content. Common choices for a poster font-type include: Arial, Book Antigua, Bookman Old Style, Calibri, Cambria, Garamond, Helvetica, and Times New Roman. Required Template/Design Characteristic 6. The font-size for the different content sections/types of the poster is different while the font-size for a specific content section/type is the same across the entire poster. The recommended range of font-size for the different content sections/types is: poster title = 55 points to 60 points poster author name = 50 points to 54 points poster headings = 32 points to 48 points poster sub-headings = 20 points to 31 points main body text/narrative = 18 points to 36 points graphic/image captions = 16 points to 18 points Required Template/Design Characteristic 7. The poster format only uses graphics/images in support of the poster content; the reason for any graphics/images and their interpretation are clear to the poster viewer/reader. Required Template/Design Characteristic 8. The poster title is less than 15 words and provides the poster viewer/reader a clear understanding of the poster's focus. Required Template/Design Characteristic 9. The name of the poster presenter/developer is shown below the poster title.

Attached below are two files. One is a PowerPoint file/slide (Coursera_PP_HealthcareOrganization.pptx) and one is a pdf of that PowerPoint file/slide (Coursera_PD_HealthcareOrganization.pdf). The PowerPoint slide is an example of a completed poster which has the required template/design characteristics and the required content items. In the example, the font-type is Arial and the font-sizes are: poster title = 60 point, author name = 54 point, headings = 44 point, and main body text/narrative = 36 point (with urls in 35 point).
