3MT (Three Minute Thesis) is a research communication competition where graduate students have 3 minutes or less to present their research and its impact to a panel of non-specialist judges and peers. The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.

Interested students must register before March 11, 2016, here:  http://grad.uwo.ca/current_students/3mt/index.html

The first heat of competition for Education students will be held on Friday, March 18, 2016 at  9:30 am in International & Graduate Affairs Building, Room #1N05.

A conference at St. Michael’s College, University of Toronto

March 17-18, 2016

Gender Equity and Social Justice in Education   Call-For-Papers_GenderEquityEducation

The purpose of this conference is to gather scholars interested in the study of women and gender inequities in education throughout the world. We hope to stimulate discussion surrounding the social, political and economic factors that impede the progressive role of women around the world. We intend to gather scholars of gender inequities and human rights in order to provoke discussion and thought surrounding these areas.

Topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to:

  • The eradication of gender-based violence and its effect on social growth
  • The transformative power of education and its effect on women’s social, political and economic opportunities in developing nations
  • Opportunities for those in more gender-equitable societies to influence the circumstances of women on an international scale

Proposals for thirty minute papers should be emailed to usmc.principalsoffice@utoronto.ca by January 30, 2016. The proposal should include the title of the paper, a 200-word abstract, the author’s institutional affiliation and full contact information.

This conference is co-sponsored by the Centre of Inquiry on Liberal Education and Social Justice and Students for Change.
