A fresh perspective for educators at all levels who grapple daily with the broken paradigm we call teaching.

A veteran of Hollywood moviemaking, Jeffrey Townsend is a self-employed filmmaker and owner of Now What Creative and says he is "passionate about the ways we understand and retain information." He has lived in Walla Walla for 16 years after having lived in New York and Los Angeles. His service to the community includes serving on the boards of the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation and Tourism Walla Walla. He also works as a liaison for the Walla Walla Film Office. He has been invited to speak at Whitman College, Walla Walla University, Rotary Club and the Walla Walla-Columbia Counties School Retirees Association.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
