Theme: Re-Inventing Education

This event occurred on

Binghamton, New York

Many learning institutions in our world are as unequipped as those attending them to face the future. At Binghamton University, a shift has occurred that has jolted education out of the classroom, and into every aspect of our lives. Each speaker has taken a leap away from standard education, and is all the better because of it. Whether it is Professor Regan's time researching international conflict by living with foreign political rebels, or Professor Garcia's time studying the biology of sex while performing the largest study of singles ever in America, these speakers have transformed the role of an educator into something more approachable, and more pragmatic. Presented by the SA, SAPB, and by Dean Nieman of Binghamton University's Harpur College, TEDxBinghamtonUniversity promises to fascinate all attendees, leaving them at the end of the day only to have them run to their computers and continue where the speakers left off.
