Inspiring, Innovative Ideas, and Insights Vol. III

This course is for curious souls who desire to engage with others about provocative, powerful, and promising prototypes and practices that will shape the future. We will view and discuss 20-minute curated presentations recorded at Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conferences held at international and local venues over the past 30 years. Three TEDtalks videos will be shown at each session, followed by interactive classroom discussion. Themes for our weekly conversations are based on the following TED-curated or instructor-created video playlists: “Innovative Houses, Machines, and Movies,” “The Emerging Trust-based Economy,” “Super Nerdy Talks About Sports,” “Inspiring Rebel Designers,” “Art Made of Unusual Stuff,” and “Jaw-dropping Bionics, Printing, and Sensors.”
