Magna Live Seminar:  Improve Academic Lectures with TED Talk Principles 

Date: Thursday May 23, 2019
Time: 12 pm – 1 pm
Locations: Main Campus–KC 110, Montoya Campus–H 108, Westside Campus–MJG 203

TED Talks have come to represent the pinnacle of effective presentations. Concise, engaging, and memorable, they are increasingly the yardstick by which speakers—including university faculty—are measured. Yet TED Talks are very different than academic lectures: they are one-time, high-profile, short presentations for an enthusiastic and voluntary audience for which the speaker receives ample practice and professional coaching. Despite these differences, there are principles we can distill from TED Talks that can make ordinary lectures and talks more effective. In this Magna online seminar, we will watch and analyze snippets from TED Talks and discuss five TED principles that will help make academic lectures more compelling while still maintaining educational integrity and substance.

Learning Goals
Upon completion of this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Make a connection with your audience
  • Establish a clear, consistent throughline
  • Apply the 5 Cs of storytelling

Here's What We'll Cover
Five elements of TED talks applied to higher-education lectures:

  1. Idea
  2. Throughline
  3. Connection
  4. Story
  5. Structure

Who Should Attend 

  • Faculty
  • Administrators
  • Instructional designers
