Mornings With TED
5 sessions, 7.5 hours
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: Matt Bernota has a Masters degree in history from the University of Maryland and for 40 years has taught both high school and adult education courses in history, economics, and law education. His favorite TED talks are those that stimulate insights and offer new perspectives into contemporary issues…one of his favorite TED talks is Karen Orestes’ “Why We Should Trust the Scientists.”
