Posters will be divided into two categories; Research and class projects. Participants should prepare a virtual poster using the template found below. Please record a 3-5 minute explanation of your research using Zoom. Specific instructions on what's expected will be sent to presenters after submitting your proposal. Presenters should be available during the live Q&A session for their category on the day-of. Poster presentations can be done individually or done by a group.

Three minute thesis (3MT) is an international, graduate level initiative that started in Australia at Queensland University and is now used by graduate programs across the United States. At Longwood in 2019, we held our first 3MP (Three Minute Presentation) as a modified version of 3MT.

 

The 3MP allows graduate students, alumni, and faculty to share how their research, inquiry, and graduate studies will help them make a difference in their chosen careers through a highly polished, practiced, memorized three-minute oral presentation. 3MP presenters are allowed to have one slide and presentations need to be appropriate to non-specialist audiences so anyone can understand the potential impact of a graduate level studies.
