We are excited to share that Lakeland University will host the second TEDxLakelandUniversity on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020.
Through the theme of "Five Years from Now," Lakeland invites presentations that help us to envision the possible futures before us. It will be an evening event in Lakeland's Bradley Theatre, and more details will be announced closer to the date.
The deadline for submitting proposals is 11:59 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2019. Potential speakers can submit a proposal here.
Lakeland's TEDx event will include a mix of live presenters and a screening of TED Talks videos intended to spark deep conversation. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
Lakeland hosted its inaugural event last October and 11 speakers were featured as part of the initial offering.
TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan ideas worth spreading.
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
