Doing a Pecha Kucha Presentation Online
NOTE: This teaching activity showcase is one of two during the 10:30am-12:00pm session. Â It will be presented within that session from 11:20am to 12:00pm.
BRIEF SESSION DESCRIPTION:
Pecha Kucha style presentation formats (recorded presentations with strict limits on slide content and time) force students to effectively plan and prepare a presentation abput data or other complicated material in a creative way by forcing them to stay within strict time visual and time limits. Â These student presentations can be used easily for online classes, as well as hybrid, or face-to-face classes, since the PowerPoint can be exported to a video file and submitted electronically. Â These can also be used to streamline peer review of student presentations.Â Participants will be able to explain what a Pecha Kucha presentation is and describe several ways they could use it in their courses.
In my hybrid courses, students have to create a Pecha Kucha presentation. This presentation consists of 6 slides for 30 seconds each (or 9 slides for 20 seconds each), for a total presentation of 3 minutes, give or take 15 seconds.
There's very little needed to make this work.
The students will use PowerPoint or another presentation software, emphasizing visuals rather than text, and embed their audio or video presentation directly into the slide. The students are graded on how well the video and audio work together, on data presented in visual form, on technical aspects, and on a bibliography. This style of presentation format forces students to prepare to stay within the strict time limits and is appropriate for a hybrid or online class since the PowerPoint can be exported to a video file and submitted electronically. Â These can also be used to streamline peer review of student presentations.
