To kick-off our 2014 Salute to Faculty Excellence Week, Distinguished Teaching Professors and other award-winning faculty presented Pecha Kucha sessions on this theme: “When did the light go on and what did you see?” Pecha Kucha is Japanese for "chit-chat " and describes a presentation format using 20 slides which advance automatically in 20 second intervals.  Our presenters used this format to share a personal story based on our theme. Feedback from the 125+ attendees indicated the program was “funspiring” – both fun and inspiring.
