C1 TED Talks
Instructor: Robert Maurer and other discussion facilitators
TED Talks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at the Technology Entertainment Design Conference with the world. Under the slogan “ideas worth spreading,” talks were released online beginning in June 2006. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. As of November 2012, TED Talks have been viewed one billion times. TED topics include technology, entertainment, design, business, science, and global issues. This course will provide you with a viewing of videos of the most watched TED Talks. Class time will offer the opportunity for discussion of the topic with a facilitator.
Robert Maurer is President and founder of the American Corporation for Education and Training (ACET), former President and CEO of the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation and COO of the NYS Board of Regents/Department of Education. He has hosted and facilitated many television shows, conference workshops and forums. Other facilitators will be added based on topics and availability.
