What is a Pecha Kucha?
Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. It’s a format designed to get a lot of messages across fast, and pack more into a conference.
How do I make one?
Make twenty powerpoint slides and do an audio file to match your slides at the rate of 20 seconds per slide. If you’re clever, insert the audio into your powerpoint presentation and sequence the slides in a full slideshow. If you aren’t clever, go google it all and it’s not that hard.
What topics should I be thinking about?
Anything in the categories of learning, peer support and advocacy that has to do with your practice of medicine. Anything you think is important and needs to get an airing. Pretty much anything.
Will I get to present?
You might. Three submissions in the categories of learning, peer support and advocacy will be chosen to be presented in the PK sessions with the pros. But if you didn’t make it don’t be too sad. We will still publish your PK on the GPDU18 site. The more the merrier. Engagement rules!
Can I do more than one and submit?
Yes, you can.
What are the judging criteria?
Good question. Coming, but in the absence of formal guidelines so far:
- A current and important issue
- Most engaging graphics
- Creative solutions
- Use of cat memes or equivalent
- And so on
What file formats do you accept?
I’m going to say anything that you can get to upload in the form to your left. But please try to keep it to a usable version of a powerpoint slideshow, with audio inserted so we can just play them to do the judging relatively easily (ie, one file if feasible not a separate audio file).
