Two PhD Students Receive Honors in Concordia Three-Minute Thesis Competition
The Department of Education is proud to announce that PhD students Michelle Savard and Nathalie Duponsel were among those recognized in the recent university-wide Three-Minute Thesis Competition.
According to GradProSkills:
"The Three Minute Thesis and Project competition is an annual, international event that challenges graduate students to present their research in easy-to-understand terms to a non-specialist audience. Participants are to present a clear, concise and engaging presentation of their work in a total of three minutes, with no props and only one non-animated PowerPoint slide. Check out some of the winning presentations from previous years on our YouTube channel." (Source: http://www.concordia.ca/students/gradproskills/events/3-minute-thesis-project.)
Michelle Savard won the Runner-Up award in the PhD category for her presentation, "A 'Hand-up' Not a 'Handout.'" She received a $150 gift certificate to the Concordia Bookstore. Nathalie Duponsel won the People’s Choice award for her presentation, "I Am the Father of the Table." She received a $100 gift certificate.
We also congratulate 3 more PhD in Education students for their presentations in the competition:
Alicia Anna Piechowiak, for "The Face of Terror"
Gala Wilkie, for "In the Shape of a Real Girl"
Education students represented 20% of all the students participating in the competition, which included 16 doctoral students and 9 master's students.
