TEFL Tourism: My Three Minute Thesis Victory

So last month I won the three minute thesis competition at Staffordshire University. Whilst my research isn’t yet quite finished (I have actually changed the names of the TEFL teacher types since delivering this presentation!), I was in a position to outline my TEFL teacher typology and provide a rationale for my research. As you can imagine, putting three year’s worth of work, much of which wouldn’t make much sense to somebody who isn’t familiar with the concepts of ethnocentrism, philanthrocapitalism or neo-colonialism, into three minutes was a challenge. Fortunately, I managed it with just eight seconds to spare and I even made the audience laugh a little too! You can watch my victory video below.

For tips on how I won the three minute thesis competition read this blog post.
