Three-Minute Thesis Competition - The Three-Minute Thesis competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research within three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-special audience. This is for PhD students from all disciplines, and winners compete for prizes, including participating at the annual conference for the Council of Southern Graduate Schools. Information sessions for potential participants will take place in September and October.
Hosted by CELT, the Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching, this seminar is for all new graduate teaching instructors and assistants. Speakers from across the university will discuss policies and resources for teaching. It covers the teaching essentials, from utilizing technology in the classroom and leading discussions to classroom management and setting boundaries.
OGPS also publishes a Teaching Resource Manual for Graduate Student Instructors in collaboration with the Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT). To suggest a topic or speakers for workshops, e-mail OGPS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
