Visualise Your Thesis Competition
Create a 60-second ePoster to explain your research
for a broad audience
Visualise Your Thesis is an exciting competition introduced by The University of Melbourne that challenges graduate researchers to present their research in a 60 second, eye-catching digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, research postgraduate students are tasked with developing a striking looped presentation to encapsulate their research projects in short, engaging, digital narratives.
“In this climate of knowledge exchange and community engagement, communicating to an audience outside the Academy is becoming increasingly important for research professionals.”
(The University of Melbourne)
Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact, and how well the content presents the research to a non-specialist audience. The digital format allows for different levels of creativity, multi-media, interactivity and interpretation and is suitable for all disciplines.
The HKU Visualise Your Thesis Competition was launched as a pilot by the Knowledge Exchange Office (KEO) in mid-2018, with support from Graduate School and the Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative (TELI). It will be officially launched in 2019, and registration will open in April 2019. Details will be announced in due course.
A briefing cum training session will be held to facilitate students’ preparation for the Competition:
