Learning changes us, sometimes deeply. When it transforms who we are and who we want to become, we call it "inspiration." With personal stories and scientific research, Dr. Brad McLain provocatively explores the elusive psychology of inspiration and its implications for education and the journey of life itself through the lens of experiential learning theory and the power of narrative to effect deeply rooted changes in our sense of identity — nothing less than the keys to change our lives and ourselves. Brad McLain is an educational researcher and co-director of XSci at the University of Colorado Denver. XSci is the Experiential Science Education Research Collaborative and produces both projects and research based on experiential learning theory and the field of identity construction. McLain's research focus is on science identity construction and the role of narrative (storytelling) in the transformation of knowledge into understanding and personal meaning making.

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)
