Who doesn’t like saying Pecha Kucha? Well, after Pecha Kucha night, which is usually present in more than one module, students will be able to do more than say the name, but also master the presentation method that was developed in Japan by professionals who were tired of long power‐point presentations and unclear story lines. Using only 20 slides, which are timed at 20 seconds each, students will present a story to the class that is based around a theme assigned by the instructor. The presentation is a way to enhance one’s story telling skills as well as a great chance to get to know other students in the course.
