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.
