Presentation Skills - 3MT Practice Session
Dr Gary Kerr, School of Environment & Life Sciences
If you are a PhD student interested in finding out about Salford's Three Minute Thesis competition, then this session is for you.
Presenting your research is a skill that all postgraduates need to master. Join last year’s SPARC 3MT winner Dr Gary Kerr as he guides you through his top 10 tips for presenting research.
About the Three Minute Thesis
The three minute thesis format was originally developed by the University of Queensland, but competitions are now run in Graduate Schools around the world. 3MT is a ‘research pitch’ which compresses your research interests and motivation into 180 seconds, and communicates this to an audience outside of your immediate specialism. You can accompany your presentation with a single, static power point slide, but this is not compulsory. The aim is to sell your research, engage people’s interest and encourage the audience to ask you more during the discussion period. It offers presenters the chance to speak to a larger and more cross disciplinary audience than a conventional presentation.
