Assessment overview
Posters are often designed to appeal to peers and colleagues at conferences and/or public displays, and to meet the organisational and informational requirements. An effective poster balances the content (information) and the layout (how the information is presented). A poster presentation is a way to communicate your research or your understanding of a topic in a short and concise format. It usually includes two elements - a poster and a brief explanation.
The purpose of poster presentations is to encourage students to investigate a topic thoroughly and develop your ability to communicate perceptively (matching your explanation to your audience) and concisely - an important workplace skill.
Task description
Students are to present their research project via a live zoom presentation in class. You can use any digital format you feel is appropriate to display your poster as long as it is compatible with the zoom presentation.
You will need to analyse and evaluate information, synthesise ideas and creatively demonstrate your understanding of a topic or the findings of your research. Students will choose one of the assigned research questions:
1) What are the issues and challenges that independent commercial organisers might have to face in the development of sport events at three different levels: local, national and international?
2) What differences for sport event tourism marketing and destination branding are engendered by one-off events versus repeat events?
3) How one city of your choice has used international sports event-led strategies to achieve wider municipal objectives?
Posters should include the following contents:
• Project title and author: your poster will need a title. It should capture the main idea of what you are presenting. Be creative! The title needs to sound interesting to encourage your audience to have a closer look.
• Introduction or Background: the background provides information necessary for your audience to understand your research. It may also include the reason why you are conducting the research.
• Research aim: this is what your research sets out to do, including the research questions you intend to answer. Again, it should be brief, and could be presented as a simple list.
• Findings: are usually the focus of the poster and can include the findings/outcomes of your research. Figures and tables are used appropriately to relay information.
• Conclusion and discussion • Recommendations
• Each student will make a 5-minute oral presentation.
Requirements
• You will present your poster in an electronic format for online class.
• On your assigned presentation day, you will have prepared a 5-minute oral presentation of your ideas.
• You need not use complete sentences throughout your poster. Remember that you will be there to summarise your work and answer questions. A mixture of full sentences and bullet point phrases will allow viewers to quickly read your content.
• If you are having difficulty devising an approach to the assignment or you want feedback on your ideas-in-progress, please contact your lecturer via email to arrange an appointment.
• Review your subject readings, particularly the theories and models of sports, events and tourism, for poster presentation ideas.
• Utilise resources including the ICMS library, websites, media articles, sports organisation homepage and websites.
• Marks will be deducted for poor spelling and grammar.
• Use at least FIVE (5) pieces of academic evidence. Academic evidences are defined as peer reviewed journal articles, governmental publications, and academic textbooks.
• You must reference your essay in accordance with the ICMS Style Guide (APA 7th referencing style).
Assessment criteria
• Knowledge and organisation (30%): The poster includes all required elements. The poster has a logical structure, with information grouped under appropriate headings. Each element of the poster has an obvious relation to the other elements.
• Development and analysis (20%): The poster incorporates all required information. The discussion of observations and applicable course readings support the presenter’s claim.
• Poster design (30%): All aspects of the poster are readable; the poster is not cluttered, and all visuals serve a specific purpose.

Submission process
• Date: A PDF of the poster must be submitted via Moodle by Sunday of Week 4 by 11.55 pm Sydney time.
• Submission in the LMS is performed via Turnitin, the similarity detection software used by ICMS students and teaching staff to prevent plagiarism by ensuring referencing is correct and that work has not been inadvertently copied from elsewhere. You can access Turnitin under the 'Assessments' section in your Moodle course site.
• Please note that draft reports submitted in this way will be regarded as the final version at the due date if you have not uploaded a subsequent, finalised version (each file uploaded overwrites the previous version).
• A penalty of 5% will be deducted for each day late with a zeromark notated for any submission seven or more days late as per ICMS policy. If for any reason you are unable to submit a late submission via Turnitin please contact your Lecturer.
• Extensions to due dates will be granted only in exceptional circumstances, and where adequate supporting documentation can be provided. Please note that work commitments do not constitute grounds for an extension. Requests must be made via the special consideration process. Decisions and recommendations are only made by lecturers-in-charge/course coordinators.
• You will be advised of your mark by your Lecturer within 2 weeks of submission.
• Please keep a copy of your assignments.
