Coastal Connections at UL Lafayette @ Oliver Hall Auditorium, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Mar 30 @ 4:00 pm

Louisiana Sea Grant is excited to sponsor the Coastal Connections competition at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on Thursday, March 30, 2017. Coastal Connections is modified from the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) approach to research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to non-specialist audience. Graduate students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their research topic and its significance using up to two PowerPoint slides. Coastal Connections focuses on the ability of students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.
