2016 AIGA Design Conference Pechakucha Presentations

In October 2016, at the AIGA Design Conference in Las Vegas, the Design Educator Committee curated a set of ten pechakucha presentations. This format—20 slides shown for 20 seconds each—allowed for a diverse group of presentations from many different educators. Two of the presentations included follow up workshops. Many attendees (it was standing room only!) asked for these presentations so we have included most of them below. Due to their large file sizes, a few presentations have been converted to low resolution PDFs. If you wish to have more information on each presentation, please contact the individual/s listed in each document.
