I won the 3MT People’s Choice Award!
I recently just competed in the 3MT (Three Minute Thesis competition) at Ciné in Athens, GA to explain my research to a non-specialist audience. I won the People’s Choice Award, which is third place, and as opposed to first and second place, the award winner is chosen by the audience.
What an amazing and challenging experience! For me, it served as a reminder to ask myself: who is my audience? I have had to prepare and rehearse for this performance a lot. So much so that it had to be second nature to me!
It was such a great exercise that I will most likely incorporate to classes I teach in the near future.
Have you participated in a 3MT? Would you want to?
