The Future in 6 Minutes and 40 Seconds
Today, I am pleased to launch a resource page for higher education and student affairs professionals interested in organizing their own PechaKucha presentations as a part of the “Future Series.”
The “Future Series” is something I first conceived of back in the Summer of 2012. The Future series entails a diverse group of colleagues coming together to present mini-presentations on their prognostications for the future. These presentations use a PechaKucha style, a format that entails a presenter speaking over 20 slides, each set to advance every 20 seconds, producing a talk of exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
I organized the first Future Series presentation with a group of colleagues for the 2103 ACPA National Convention. It was so successful, it drew a standing-room-only crowd of over 400 people. (!!!) To my knowledge, this was the first use of the PechaKucha presentation style at any education, higher education or student affairs conference.
The “Future Series” has been so warmly received, I’d like to share it with you so you can organize your own session. To this end, I’ve created a resource page for those interested in organizing their own sessions:
