Pedagogy Quickfire

Temporarily suspended due to Covid-19

Pedagogy Quickfire is an event where faculty (full- and part-time) use short-form presentations to discuss their teaching strategies and experiences. Our goal is to create a social setting to share examples, stories, and learning moments as teachers, scholars, and artists.

Resources for Creating a Short-form Presentation

Presentations at this event follow a format of having 20 slides, each automatically advancing after 20 seconds. Because of the relatively fast progression, slides focus more on images and short phrases rather than lengthy alphabetic text.
