The 3MT Framework- Best Practices for Communicating Complex Ideas to Non-specialists

Darren Browning, PhD

Explaining your research in an effective way will serve you well in so many important ways: job interviews, oral presentations, team building, study sections, at conferences, and when writing effective manuscripts and grant applications. Whether or not you participate in or win the final competition, your ability to effectively and efficiently communicate your research will improve dramatically just by attending the 3MT workshops and/or by going through the 3MT process. We encourage you to attend this first 3MT workshop to learn: (1) more about the 3MT, (2) the eligibility criteria for competing, and (3) how to structure your content to tell your research story for an impactful 3MT delivery.  Provided template- Participant Worksheet to get started on your winning presentation.
