Honors the winners of the 2017 awards for teaching excellence. Invitation only. Reception: 5:45 p.m. Dinner and award presentations: 6:30 p.m. Sponsored by the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost. Part of Honors Week.
The Georgia Review's ninth annual Earth Day event will include a talk by nationally known environmental writer John Lane, music by Hawk Proof Rooster, and a reception. Past speakers have included National Book Award winner Barry Lopez, Alison Hawthorne Deming, Gary Ferguson, and Ann Pancake.
The exercise develops academic, presentation, and research communication skills and supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.
Master’s and doctoral students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis or dissertation topic and its significance. 3MT™ is not an exercise in trivializing or ‘dumbing-down’ research but forces students to consolidate their ideas and crystalize their research discoveries.
A reception will follow.
Exclusive admission to Six Flags over Georgia for UGA students, alumni, faculty, staff, and guests. Tickets go on sale February 20th in the Tate Student Center Cashier Window with a valid UGA card.
Limited bus transportation provided. Free parking available at Six Flags.
This is a rain or shine event. Everyone entering the park will also receive a return-visit voucher valid for a full-day refund on June 4, 11, or 18. Flash passes and VIP Tours are not available on UGA Nght, and season passes will not be honored.
Prisms transform light into a spectacular display of colors; the ordinary becomes the extraordinary. Ideas have the power to act as prisms. They challenge us, they change us—and when we hold them up to the light—they help us to see the world differently than before. TEDxUGA 2017 will explore the full spectrum of ideas that exists within the University of Georgia. Join the fifth annual celebration of ideas worth spreading.
