The College of Arts and Law Graduate School invites its students to a workshop with Dr Inger Mewburn, also known as The Thesis Whisperer, on the most important topic of all: how to speak concisely, persuasively and inspirationally about your research and why it matters.
Inger was instrumental in the development of the Three Minute Thesis competition, and in line with the principles of the competition, this workshop will help you to focus on what really matters about your research. In the process, you should find yourself newly able to communicate your expertise in eloquent and exciting ways. Next year, the Birmingham Three Minute Thesis winner might be you!
This is an ideal opportunity to learn strategies for explaining and highlighting the significance of your research in ways that will make sense to people other than your supervisors or examiners – and of course, this is a skill with enormous scope for transferability well beyond your research thesis.
Whether you’re embarking on your PhD with us this year, or you’re a continuing student feeling stumped by the ‘so what?’ of your thesis, this workshop is for you.
This event is exclusively available to students in the College of Arts and Law.
Places are limited and booking is essential. To book your place, please email email@example.com.
