In a couple of weeks I will be presenting a poster on some of my dissertation study findings at the 9th International Conference on Social Work in Health and Mental Health, York, UK.
I’m very excited about presenting some of my research and about learning from colleagues from around the world! I’ve also been learning some new things about technology as I prepare my poster for presentation. I decided to include a QR code (AKA “blob code”) on my poster that would allow folks to easily access a pdf version of it and also provide them an opportunity to check out the other posts and resources on this blog.
Using the QR code generator so far has been super easy. Figuring out how to create a code for a link that doesn’t yet exist has been a bit tricky, however. First I tried adding a pdf copy of the poster to the Resources page and then updating the file, but that didn’t work. Then I tried to link the QR code to the url for this blog post. The problem with this solution was that I also tried to schedule release of the post for the day of the conference. Doing it that way, however, did not provide me with a usable link. So in the end, I decided to make a copy of the poster without the QR code and just put the QR code on the actual poster that I will present.
Whew! There is likely an easier way. But this solution will suffice for now.
So, without further adieu, here is a copy of the Training Triggers poster without the QR code. I’ll update this post with a copy of the QR code after I publish the post and get a working url.
Edit* And below is a copy of the QR code for those interested. I see more experimenting with QR codes in my future…
