|3 Minute Thesis at AECT 2015
Hello Graduate students and AECT members,
The AECT Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) is hosting the third annual 3 Minute Thesis (3MT®) at this year’s convention in Indianapolis!
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills to effectively explain their research in three minutes in a language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience. http://threeminutethesis.org/
Join GSA on Thursday, November 5th for the preliminary round of the 3MT Competition at 6:30 PM at Hyatt Regency. 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 Friday, November 7th at 3:30 – 4:30 PM.
Judges will select the Grand Prize Winner, who will take home e-learning authoring software, Articulate Storyline 2 and a Runner-up for the prize of Camtasia/Snag-it bundle. Audience members will vote on a People’s Choice Winner, who will be awarded the Handbook of Research on Educational Communications and Technology.
Entry into the competition is limited to the first 20 graduate students.
