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.

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 by September 1, 2016
