Preparing for 3MT in 2023?

 
Crafting Your 3MT Slide for Impact

January 24th, 6-7 pm over Zoom

Are you preparing to present at Three-Minute Thesis but don’t know how to design your slide? The Center for Writing Excellence is excited to partner with the Augusta University Graduate School to offer a one-hour presentation on designing a PowerPoint slide that is—as the 3MT judging criteria state—“well-defined” and that “enhance[s] the presentation.” During this session, we’ll unpack what these criteria mean, explain how to create coherence between the slide and the rest of the presentation,  analyze examples from past 3MT winners, and outline best practices to make sure that your slide supports your 3MT presentation rather than distracts from it. We will also share additional resources with you as you prepare your 3MT slide.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Can you present your thesis in only three minutes? Take the challenge! 

The Augusta University 3MT competition is an excellent professional development opportunity to enhance your storytelling and presentation skills.

As a participant, you can gain skills and learn strategies to:

  • Capture and hold the attention of a large audience
  • Effectively use voice inflection, body language, and gestures to teach
  • Create an educational visual aid in support of a presentation
  • Deliver a message that will be retained by the audience
  • Articulate how your research benefits society (broader impacts)

Honing these skills will serve you well in: in job interviews, oral presentations, team building, study sections, at conferences, and when writing effective manuscripts and grant applications.  Ready to improve your ability to communicate scientific information?

Why should you participate in the 3MT?  

Listen to what Dr. Browning and some past participants have to say...
