Pecha Kucha: The 6:40 Student Presentation
Ever sit through a series of long, unfocused, and under-prepared student presentations and wonder what you could do to help them improve? Developed in Japan almost a decade ago, "pecha kucha" is one approach to improving student's presentation content and style. Students have twenty slides that auto-advance every twenty seconds, a 6:40 presentation. We have found across several courses that this format encourages students to create crisp, better-argued, and more visually appealing presentations.

A Campus Read, a Campus Discussion!
Growing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Through Institutional Culture
The scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) represents an important movement within higher education; however, for SOTL to take hold on a campus, a culture shift often needs to occur. This roundtable discussion will draw upon the findings of this study (pdf)* to further consider how SOTL might become an important element within our own campus culture.
Please prepare for this discussion by reading the article, which is also available at http://josotl.indiana.edu/article/view/1806/1803.
