Project Resources from Educators Pre-Conference PechaKucha Session in New Orleans

October 9, 2015 / AIGA DEC

In a session on innovative teaching during the Design Educators pre-conference at the AIGA Revival Conference in New Orleans, five design educators each presented a compelling project from their studio classes. The session used the PechaKucha format, which allows presenters to share 20 images for 20 seconds each for a total of a 6 minute and 40 seconds, to convey their ideas. This concise, dynamic format created a energetic atmosphere and packed much information into the 45-minute session. Presenters shared some of their project materials and presentation details for download below:
