I recently entered a competition at Wilfrid Laurier University called the 3MT, or the Three Minute Thesis. It reminded me of the Ignite concept but with one static slide and only three minutes to pitch your research to a non-expert audience. The 3MT originated in Australia in 2008 and is now in Ontario for the first time. Seventeen universities have entered the inaugural Provincial competition, taking place at Queen’s University on April 18th, 2013. And I will be there…proudly representing Laurier…because I won!
So here’s my 3MT presentation on my thesis research, on the importance of greater parent and teacher collaboration in education. I would like to thank Debbie Pushor for her inspiration. I open my presentation with her words.
