Pecha Kucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha) is Japanese for chit-chat. This model offers a lively presentation format for sharing ideas: 20 slides displayed for 20 seconds or approximately 6 minutes 40 seconds (see Pecha Kucha video for an overview)! Join forces with a local group of experts to discuss their implementation of and best practice models for wikis. Many of the participants will talk about Atlassian's Confluence wiki software but a handful of other wikis will be highlighted as well. It is not necessarily the tool but the way individuals have applied collaboration and engagement techniques to foster communication, streamline workflows, and promote the exchange of ideas. The presentations will center on technological configuration, wiki architecture, deployment of wikis, and methods for fostering and growing knowledge spaces across organizations and our professional associations.
