Mornings With TED
5 sessions, 7.5 hours
We welcome back Tera Kijek. Grab a cup of coffee and wake up with TED. Don’t know TED? Allow ILR to introduce you: TED short videos, pulled from the highly respected TED conferences, feature some of the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers who are challenged to give the “talk of their lives” in 18 minutes or less. The subjects of TED talks range from technology, entertainment, and design to science, global issues, humanity and more. Their mission? Spreading Ideas. The series invites you to watch a short, hand- picked TED video at each class and share your own ideas with your fellow students in a lively discussion of the topic.
Instructor: Tera Kijek is the originator of ILR’s Mornings with TED series. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Information Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. As a lifelong student she has studied extensively on the intersection between technology, society, psychology and human nature. Having grown up all over the world, she brings a unique perspective to her courses. Her favorite TED talks are those that inspire lively philosophical debate and challenge preconceived ideas.
