Pecha-Kucha chapter report for TLT

KOBE, KYOTO, NARA, AND OSAKA: December – Pecha-Kucha Night by various presenters. Once again, the Kansai area JALT chapters joined together for a year-end event of 12 Pecha-Kucha presentations, at the Konan University’s Hirao School of Management (CUBE) in Nishinomiya.
Pecha-Kucha is a simple presentation format where each presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds each, in a fast-paced speech lasting just 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
Warren Decker kicked things off with his Hiking Trip in Wakayama, followed by Mizuka Tsukamoto’s report on Bhutan.
James Crocker was next with his JALT Literary Review Proposal, and then Joanna Baranowska spoke about her Internship at Kyoto Machiya Tondaya.
Harlan Kellem gave a comparison of Men’s Street Fashion vs. Timeless Fashion, and Steve Cornwell shared various cultural aspects of Teaching about Christmas.
Ellen Head presented on Amnesty International’s Write for Rights, followed by Doug Meyer’s Job Survey Results and Laura Markslag’s report on her Dubai International Exchange online with her Japanese students.
Stuart McLean informed us of his JALT Research Grant project, followed by Deryn Verity’s Life in Pictures, and Sean Gay concluded with a talk on Bilingualism.
Thanks to the main organizer Brent Jones for an enjoyable evening of interesting presentations in a stimulating format.
One participant commented, “Pecha-Kucha was FUN!! That was my first time to go, but I plan to go to every single one held in the future!!”
Another responded, “It was good, wasn’t it! I’ve also made it a habit to go, since there’s always an eclectic bunch and a wide range of topics, usually presented in creative ways. See you at the next one!” Reported by Ray Franklin
