Pecha Kucha (pronounced as a single word 'Pech-a-ka-cha') is a translation of the Japanese term for ˜chit-chat". The links provided below will provide you with plenty of information about the origins of this presentation format. We have introduced Pecha Kucha for Teaching Matters 2012 to enliven some of the concurrent sessions with a fun, fast and engaging model for presenters and their audiences.
Each concurrent session programmed with Pecha Kucha presentations will involve 3 separate presentations. Each single presenter (although you may opt to share the presentation time with other people from your team) will be allocated with a maximum time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds for their presentations, which equates to 20 slides shown for a maximum of 20 seconds each. We have provided a timed powerpoint template (PPT 84KB) which you might like to use. There are plenty of others available on the internet. At the end of all 3 presentations, each of the presenters will act as a panel to address questions from the audience.
The Pecha Kucha model seeks to overcome the text heavy nature of powerpoint presentations. Even though the original model requires the exclusive use of images, the Teaching Matters convening team will be happy to accept that SOME slides are likely to have LIMITED text on them to communicate ideas.
