HELPING GRADUATE STUDENTS better ARTICULATE WHAT THEY DO THROUGH 3MT!
Graduate Pathways to Success Manager Jacqui Brinkman writes about the importance of graduate students sharing their research. Opportunities like the Three-Minute Thesis not only help students better articulate what they do, it also helps them think differently about their research. This has helped participants write their theses as well as prepare them for their PhD defenses.
