3 Minute Thesis at AECT 2016
Hello Graduate students and AECT members,
The AECT Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) is hosting the fourth annual 3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) at this year’s convention in Las Vegas!
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise develops students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills to effectively explain their research in three minutes in language appropriate to an educated, but non-specialist audience. http://threeminutethesis.org/
Join GSA on Wednesday, October 19th for the preliminary round of the 3MTCompetition at 6:30 PM at Westgate Casino and Resort. A select panel of AECT faculty and professionals will judge the contestants, and the top scoring individuals will advance to the finals, to be held on Thursday, October 20th at 3:30 – 4:30 PM.
Judges will select the Grand Prize Winner and the Runner-up. Audience members will vote on a People’s Choice Winner. Prizes for this competition include Lectora® and Camtasia/Snag-it bundle.
Entry into the competition is limited to the first 20 graduate students. Register at http://tinyurl.com/gsfadwy by September 1, 2016.
