talks a talk

Events at which I have spoken or presented, in varying levels of formality.

Parti in the Classroom

As part of an Integrated Learning Technology Development Grant at Simon Fraser University I worked in collaboration with IT Services, Dr. Robyn Schell and Arita Liu to develop an add-on for learning management systems which allows an instructor to collect, review and discuss the visual work of students en-masse.

The project was presented as a poster at the SFU Teaching & Learning Symposium and with Dr. Schell as a session at the Sketching in Practice Symposium. It will be presented at InstructureCon in July 2016.

Richmond PechaKucha

Presented a talk at the Richmond Cultural Centre as part of their Human x Technology PechaKucha evening. Admittedly, I think I may have moved away from the typical ‘Pecha Kucha’ theme a bit by preaching technological wary-ness. Oops.


iClicker Games

Presented an exploration in custom iClicker games at Simon Fraser University’s Teaching and Learning Symposium held on June 16, 2012, in Vancouver, Canada.

The games themselves were made for Graphic Design (IAT-102) taught at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (Simon Fraser University) to offer a bit more context specific interaction than the usual multiple-guess format offered by the iClicker software.


Presented on Beatback: A Real-time Interactive Percussion System for Self-Directed Practice at the New Interfaces for Musical Expression Conference in Jun 2010. This was part of completing my M.Sc at Simon Fraser University and is the system that I developed and wrote about in my thesis.

Co-authors on the paper were Philippe Pasquier and Arne Eigenfeldt.


Presented Freepad: A Custom Paper-Based MIDI Interface at the New Interfaces for Musical Expression Conference in Jun 2010 on behalf of Sungkuk, who was unable to attend himself. I was involved in the development of the system, but most definitely not capable enough to lead the development on the project.

Primary author Sungkuk Chun, co-authors on the paper were Philippe Pasquier and Keechul Jung.
