3MT Coaching Session

Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. 3MT challenges HDR candidates to consolidate their ideas and research discoveries so they can be presented concisely to a non-specialist audience.

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the way the competition will run in 2020 will be different, with participants asked to prepare a video of their 3MT talk for submission.  The winner of the JCU competition will be able to submit their entry to the Asia-Pacific competition.  Please see further information here.

The GRS offers coaching sessions to help HDR candidates create the sort of presentation that will make a good impression on 3MT judges.  Sessions are conducted by Associate Professor Liz Tynan from the GRS, an experienced 3MT coach.  Learn about the particular requirements of the 3MT competition, some of which may move researchers out of their 'comfort zone'.  This year, the sessions will be conducted by Zoom, and there is a strict limit of 10 participants per session.  The emphasis in these sessions will be on practical advice to achieve a polished and clear presentation.
