Have you tried using TED Talks at work? What is your experience?

I had this idea this morning to bring TED into my workplace (see http://www.ted.com/conversations/3928/bring_the_ted_spark_to_your_wo.html). I have actually created our network on the company Yammer group today to share the idea, test it and share feedback.

Have you tried this at your workplace before? What format? What worked? What didn't? Why? I would be very much interested to hear your experience using TED Talks at work.

Consider visiting the above TED Idea post to leave a comment on the TED@[work] concept.

    Jul 27 2011: Good question Oob - I use TED talks to get students thinking in environmental science classes. e.g. Craig Venter, Pater Ward, Cary Fowler, Jonathan Drory, and Juan Eriquez when we discuss biodiversity and evolution; Dean Ornish, Ann Cooper, and Mark Bittman on food; Larry Brilliant and Laurie Garrett on pandemics, Anupam Mishra and Michael Prichards on water; to name a few. After seeing and discussing a couple of these, the content in the text has a context to which it can be applied.
    • Jul 27 2011: Glyn, thank you for sharing your experience. And thank you for the list of talks you have used with your students, which I am sure others will benefit from. Ann Cooper and Anupam Mishra are definitely some of my favourites. I will probably use your list as a starting point to trigger more thinking on environmental matters. Thanks again for sharing!
