ANU has youtubed their winning “Three Minute Thesis” by Rosanna Stevens with this explanation:
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an international competition for research students to showcase their research. Students have to talk about what their research is and why it is important in plain language for three minutes, with only a single PowerPoint slide. The ANU 2014 3MT final was held on Wednesday 17 September, and 11 representatives from the University’s seven Colleges competed. Rosanna Stevens from the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences won first prize and the People’s Choice award, and Chit Win from the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific was runner-up. Rosanna will now represent ANU at the trans-Tasman final at the University of Western Australia on Monday 3 November.
