Big Ideas



BIG IDEAS: Powered by PechaKucha

Big Ideas is powered by PechaKucha, a unique presentation format during which the speaker’s 20 slides auto-advance every 20 seconds, for a total length of just under seven minutes. This creates a dynamic presentation that explores different aspects of the conference theme in an innovative way from a variety of voices within the Canadian student affairs profession. The Pecha Kucha presentation style is best used when presenting a story, idea, problem, or topic in an efficient and effective manner.

NEW THIS YEAR, Big Ideas Powered by PechaKucha will open Day Two of the conference on Tuesday, June 18. By scheduling Big Ideas outside of the Concurrent Sessions, all conference delegates will have the opportunity to hear from presenters in our diverse membership. These individuals will represent a wide breadth of institutions across Canada and will share their stories by using this unique platform to present their ideas, challenges, and lived experiences.

An example of a great Pecha Kucha presentation comes from University of Ontario Institute of Technology's Lesley D’Souza:

“The path to change is forged with empathy, and we build empathy through stories. Lesley talks about how we can solve our biggest problems by tapping into our ability to share and absorb stories.”
