The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland, Australia. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students' capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.
Doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their dissertation topic and its significance. 3MT™ is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.
Currently enrolled doctoral students at Florida State University will be eligible to participate in 3MT™. Graduates and master's students are not eligible.
Prior to the 3-Minutes Thesis (3MT™), the Graduate School hosts workshops for graduate students intending to enter the competition. Dates will be posted at the beginning of the semester.
Comprehension and Content: Did the presentation help the audience understand the research and was the thesis topic and its significance communicated in language appropriate for an intelligent but non-specialist audience?
Engagement and Communication: Did the oration make the audience want to know more?
