Registration has just opened for the third annual Research Live! competition and to invite you to share this opportunity with your graduate students.
Now in its third year, Research Live! asks graduate students from all disciplines to hone their presentation skills and highlight their work by giving a compelling 3-minute, 2-slide talk for a general audience.
You know that students in your program are engaged in exciting, ground-breaking research and creative work. You know just how impressive and interesting they can be. Now you can encourage your students to show off all that hard work and creativity at Research Live!.
Graduate students can learn more, find resources to help them prepare, and register to compete on this page. Registration closes on October 18.
Last year, over 60 students competed in preliminary rounds and 14 took part in the finals. (You can view the finalists’ presentations here.) This year, we hope to have even more students participate from an even greater variety of disciplines.
The finals judges this year include:
Niala Boodhoo, Host & Executive Producer, The 21st, Illinois Public Media/WILL
Anita Say Chan, Associate Research Professor of Media & Cinema Studies and faculty affiliate in the Illinois Informatics Institute
Melanie Loots, Executive Associate Vice Chancellor for Research
Jeffrey Magee, Director of the School of Music and Professor of Music and Theater
