Poster Sessions

About the Poster Session

A poster session is a forum for young, emerging and experienced professionals to share best practices and related resources with colleagues. The NIEA poster session will highlight successful and innovative research, programming and practices within Native education spanning Pre-K through Post-Secondary. Poster presentations will highlight the main points or components of your best practice in a way that participants can easily learn about a topic. Pictures, graphs, data, and text are typical tools used to display information effectively.
