About TEDx ValenciaCollegeLive

tedx-notext-groveOn June 12, 2013, Valencia faculty, staff and students made their debut on the TED Global stage in Edinburgh, Scotland; well, at least a picture of them did. And on the next day, via time-delayed simulcast, 29 talented presenters and performers were digitally transported from Scotland to Valencia’s East Campus.

TEDxValenciaCollegelive was a daylong event, where more than 100 faculty, staff and students experienced the power and wonder of TED talks. With talks on money, geopolitics, science, religion, the arts and more, there was something for everyone.   At the event, over 60 students signed up for, and expressed their interest in, creating a TEDxValenciaCollege Club. James May, professor of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and the event’s organizer, is currently working with Jacob Howe, the student government president, to bring the TEDx Club to Valencia.
