    –A lot of the posters tend to have the original research and the popularization on opposite sides
    –Visuals, similiarities/differences in the middle
    –Catchy titles
    –Categories are blocked off
    –Arrows point to important information

    These are some of the adaptation strategies I observed when viewing everyone’s posters. These techniques will make it easier to popularize a research article.

    adaptation strategies:

    – narrative/informal style
    – catchy title
    – brief summary of original article
    – direct quotes from experts
    – highlights relevant data
    – evidence from other sources
    – appeals to common sense
    – no prior knowledge needed to read and understand
    – casual structure
    – examples in real world context
    – main argument presented first
    – visuals aid understanding

    -I agree that there was a physical separation of the article types to underline the comparison going on between them.
    -Catchy titles were common and a must to attract reader attention. Ryan’s and Elizabeth’s especially caught my eye for their wit and humor.
    Utilizing photos from and of both articles were a comon practice and useful for supporting differences and similarities.

    Two things I did not see that I wish had been more common were explanations as to why the comparison was important and sources cited.

    Also, Professor, you did not post my final draft of the poster. I did send you the final draft because it was on the projector the week before break. Let me know and I’ll go ahead and resend it. Thanks

    Some adaptation strategies I noticed:
    -graphics (logos, screen shots of the articles, images to catch the reader’s attention)
    – comparison (charts, tables, flow charts)
    – the use of color-coding
    – blocking of text, bubbles, arrows, shapes (to guide the reader’s attention/eye in a certain direction)
    – examples (most posters had a separate section for them)
    – design (alignment, contrast)

  5. pmgomezg says:

    The adaptation strategies that I noticed in most of the posters were…..
    1. clear division of topics through the use of shapes.
    2. Fluidity between sections by either using arrows, “geographic” orientation (top to bottom), color coding, or combination of the three.
    3. Separation between forums/articles for clarity.
    4. visual representations/screenshots from each article
    5. examples, though the placement of them differed the most between all the posters.
    6. catchy titles
    7. clear contrast.
    8. comparison through venn diagrams or tables
    9. introduction/ objective of presentations for clarification.
