Pecha Kucha with Our Stuff: How to Teaching with Rare Books, Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections
Pecha kucha is a fast-paced and entertaining new format for presentations using brevity and clarity. Each presenter is limited to exactly twenty slides, progressing automatically at twenty seconds per slide, resulting in a 6 minute, 40 second focused showcase of their work. For the first RBMS Preconference seminar using this format, we're taking a pecha kucha peek inside each other's special collections classroom. Demonstrate your innovative in-class exercises, your experimental instructional approaches, or your tried-and-true tricks and tools for teaching with the “stuff” of our profession. We are looking for presentations that show how you teach and utilize a variety of pedagogical models in any discipline, for any audience, of any concept.
Proposals for your pecha kucha presentation should be 250 words or less, and should outline both your pedagogical basis and your plan for demonstrating it in the session. Please also include a brief bio and title for your proposed presentation.
Proposals are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30th.
See you in Baton Rouge!
