This site represents the collective efforts of “TED.com-Ideas Worth Sharing,” a First Year Seminar consisting of 28 students and two faculty members at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. Although there are two different sections, led by two different faculty members, the sections meet simultaneously and collaborate regularly. The first order of business was to build a student constructed Syllabus.
In the coming weeks, this site will consist of student-led discussions and comments on particular themes which students gleaned from the vast and constantly growing library of TED talks. At the end of the seminar, students will deliver their own talk which follows in the TED tradition in format and style and which is inspired by the goal of sharing ideas which can make our collective human circumstances a little bit better.
