Texas Tech University System will host the first TEDxTexasTechUniversity event from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 8 (Saturday) in the Lanier Professional Development Center at the Texas Tech School of Law.
Founded in 1984, TED stands for “technology, entertainment, design” and is perhaps most famous for its online “TED Talks” that have been viewed by millions around the world. The annual TED conference brings together some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers. In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED created TEDx where “x” indicates the events are independently organized.
The schedule for the day consists of three sessions, separated by breaks and lunch. During each session, three to five presenters will speak on a variety of topics. The day concludes with a reception.
