Listen and Learn at TEDx Canberra

Greetings from the National Library of Australia (NLA) in Canberra where TEDx Canberra 2011 is on today. The video is being streamed live on-line. It is being vieo streamed live on-line and audio streamed by 666 ABC Canberra Radio. Some segments will be broadcast later on ABC TV Big Ideas.

I volunteered to be on the door. There are about 300 people registered for the event and there was a steady stream of people through the door from 8am for the 9:15 start.

The talk I found most exciting was one of the shortest: three minutes from Emma Davidson on communicating with refugee and indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties.

Annette Zou and Richard Dear talked about ANU XSA, the ANU Cross-disciplinary Stu­dents Acad­emy. This grew out of Professor Ian Young's Vice-Chancellor’s Courses, which emphasize inter-disciplinary sharing.
