Communicating your research to a non-specialist audience is an essential career skill, whether you’re preparing for job interviews, networking at a conference, or just trying to explain to family and friends what you do with your time. This workshop, sponsored by the Writing Center and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development, will help graduate students from all disciplines to prepare an accessible, intriguing three-minute talk about their research. If you’re interested in learning how to craft a concise, general explanation of your research, or if you plan to participate in the 3MT® Three-Minute Thesis competition, this workshop is for you.
After the workshop, stick around for dinner and an additional workshop hosted by the Multicultural Graduate Network (MGN) and The Writing Center!
This event is co-sponsored by the Graduate School Office of Professional Development and The Writing Center.
