Inspiring, Innovative Ideas, and Insights Vol. IV

This course is for curious souls who desire to engage with others about provocative, powerful, and promising prototypes, processes, procedures, 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: “Best Science & Tech of 2016”; “The World of Tiny Things”; “Cultural Differences”; “The Future of Medicine”; “Nutritional Health & Healing”; “How Music Affects Us.”
Note: This course does not meet on Wednesday, November 22.
