Colorado Council of Graduate Schools hosts first annual 3-Minute Talk Competition
Share Your Research in Just 3 MinutesGraduate School Apr 4, 2019
In 2008, the University of Queensland, Australia, started the first 3-Minute Thesis Competition challenging PhD students to present their research in just three minutes with one standing slide. Meanwhile this enterprise has spread all over the world, and many universities now host such competitions. Now many institutions also invite Master’s students to participate and have therefore adopted other names, such as 3-Minute Project, GradSlam, 3-Minute Talks, etc.
In 2018, the University of Colorado Denver|Anschutz Medical Campus started its first 3-Minute Talk Competition on the Denver Campus, to be followed by an Anschutz Competition and an Intercampus Competition in Spring 2019. The intercampus winner represented the University at the regional competition of the Western Association of Graduate Schools (WAGS) and at the Colorado State-Wide competition that is hosted by the Colorado Council of Graduate Schools (Colorado CGS).
