Grad Thesis Slam Preparation Series 1: What is Grad Thesis SLAM & How Do I Get Started?


What is the Grad Thesis SLAM & How Do I Get Started? | Feb. 23, 3:00-4:00 pm (virtual)

The UVA Grad Thesis SLAM providesdoctoral students from all disciplines an opportunity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in language appropriate for a non-specialist audience. This is a modified version of Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, to make it inclusive for all disciplines.

This 60-minute workshop will provide an overview of the competition rules and expectations, including time for you to ask any questions you might have about participating. We’ll go over judging criteria (same for both rounds) and event structure (preliminary and final), break down some examples of previous winning presentations, and give you practical steps to get started preparing your talk. After participating, attendees will know more about their audience, understand the presentation format and requirements, and have a timeline for developing their talk.
