TED Talks for Parents TED Talks for Parents

Sunday, November 4
9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Room 5D

We are continuing our popular Sunday Morning TED Talk series, this year taking the time to broaden our scope beyond parenting into talking about relationships in a digital age.

Typically held on the first Sunday of the month, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the fourth-floor Loft (but please note we will next meet in Room 5D), TED Talks gatherings offer parents the opportunity to come together for a time of connection and conversation with one another.

Our typical gathering schedule looks like this:

  • Twenty minutes of socializing and meeting other parents
  • Twenty minutes of watching a TED Talk. The November talks will be “Breaking the Habit of Small Talk” and “How to Have a Good Conversation,” two short talks that explore and challenge the way that we often communicate with others.
  • Twenty minutes in small groups discussing themes and ideas from the talk using a handout with prepared questions

Come join us for coffee, muffins, and bagels and some great conversation!

For more information, please contact Matt Helms.
