How to Improve Academic Lectures with TED Talk Principles: Connect, Convey, Communicate

How to Improve Academic Lectures with TED Talk Principles: Connect, Convey, Communicate

Thursday, May 23, 2019 | 1:00 PM Central | 60 Minutes

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.
