#TLTCon - Session Highlight
It's going to be epic!
Pecha Kucha? Why and how would anyone ever want to present a Pecha Kucha session?
Workshop Leader: Ian O'Byrne (Teacher Education)
Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a presentation methodology in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format utilizes images more than words, keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events, keeps the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.
For this medium to reach full utility, we must explore its bounds and its possibilities. That is, the paring down of a presentation to the audio-visual bounds of Pecha Kucha introduces portability and engagement alongside the potential loss of depth. This alternative Pecha Kucha session will show participants the style of Pecha Kucha presentations and provide them with an opportunity to practice and present during the allotted workshop time.
