      Apr 5 2012: hi Sam,

      This is a great question -- I've been asked this question by others as well as they are trying this experiment in their classrooms.

      One piece of advice is to invest in the time it takes to come up with a pithy question relevant to the broader community, and also relevant to the classroom. For us, this is quite collaborative, and as the semester's progressed, the students are running away with it!

      Sam, are you faculty yourself considering a "TEDinClass" type of project? If so, I'd love to hear more about it!
