Pecha Kucha at Canadian Association of Law Libraries Annual Conference

The Canadian Assocation of Law Libraries is holding its annual meeting in Calgary.

At today's pre-conference called "Spice Up Your Training", Carol Watson (University of Georgia Law Library) introduced attendees to the presentation technique known as Pecha Kucha (more info at http://pecha-kucha.org/).

Basically, presenters get to show 20 images or slides, each for 20 seconds, with the images being moved forward automatically.

It does not work for all topics - try teaching regulatory research with Pecha Kucha - but it does have its applications in the library and/or training context.

Watson mentioned its potential as an alternative to panel discussions, as a keynote presentation, as a team building tool (e.g. "a day in the life..." to show colleagues what everyone does), as a way of making staff meetings livelier ...

There are many Pecha Kucha examples from many sectors (architecture, art, libraries...) on YouTube - at http://www.youtube.com search for "pecha kucha".
