Selected TED talks - Ideas Worth Sharing

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 presentations recorded at Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conferences over the past 30+ years. TED events cover almost all topics—from science to business to global issues. Three TED talks videos will be shown at each session, followed by interactive classroom discussion. Themes for our weekly conversations include the following: “Climate change: Oh, it's real”; “The emotional impact of architecture”; “Craftsmanship”; “The power of film”; “Be a better conversationalist”; “Document your life.”
