Summary: PechaKucha is a dynamic presentation format well-suited for the average human attention span of nine minutes. This session will introduce the basic principle of PechaKucha (20 slides + 20 seconds narration per slide = ~7 minutes). By replacing text and bullet points with imagery, clarity, and simplicity, this method allows you to present manageable and memorable chunks of information to colleagues and students. Also included are potential uses for PechaKucha; how to plan your talk; and where to find public domain images.
