PechaKucha(IPA: [petɕa kɯ̥tɕa], which translates as “the sound of conversation” or “chit-chat” in Japanese) is a modality of fast-track oral presentation that challenges presenters to lay out information in a succinct and highly visual manner— it encourages the use of images instead of plain text. Born in the Roppongi district, PechaKucha presentations were devised so as to allow young designers to showcase their work and gather feedback in a way that was more time-efficient than traditional oral presentations. PechaKucha presentations are an excellent option for young scholars interested in getting polyphonic feedback on their research, since this modality allows for extended discussion time and engaging interaction between presenters and audience members.
