Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Three Minute Thesis is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in Australia in 2008. The premise of the competition is to develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills. It supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but nonspecialist audience. Doctoral students have three minutes to present compelling orations on their dissertation topics and their significance. 3MT™ is not an exercise in “watering down” research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and concisely explain their research discoveries.
