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.
