Three Minute Thesis (3MT©) competition

Every year, Brock University participates in the 3MT© Challenge, held in universities across Canada.

Three minutes. One PowerPoint slide. No props. These are the fundamentals of the competition, which gives graduate students three minutes to explain their research in a way that captivates judges and others from outside their discipline and why it matters.

This year, 12 students competed in Brock’s preliminary 3MT round in February. The five finalists were:

  • Ali Anwar, MSc in Management, “The Personalization-Privacy Paradox in M-commerce: Loyalty Outcomes Explained Through Customers Flow Experience and Regulatory Foci”
  • Aly Bailey, PhD in Applied Health Sciences, “Get with the program – the BIAS program”
  • Cody McMahon, MA in History, “Soldiers to Scholars: Veterans and Universities in Postwar Canada”
  • Kaitlyn Kerridge, MA in Applied Health Sciences, “Mindfully Making Our Way in the World: The Exploration of Mindfulness Among Post-Secondary Students”
  • Shannon Kitchings, MA in Social Justice and Equity Studies, “Can You Hear Me Now?”

These five students gave their presentations at the March 29 final round. Kaitlyn Kerridge was chosen to represent Brock University at the Ontario Regional round, held at York University on April 19.
