Courtney O'Connell is the Associate Director for Leadership and Training at Rutgers University. On any given day you can find her dreaming up new initiatives, learning new technology to play with, and meeting with students/colleagues with the ultimate goal in mind of empowering those around her to dream big, think different and change the world around them.

Most notably she envisioned and served as project manager on The Big Ideas in Higher Education Conference, and co-founded The Jersey Alliance. She has been recognized for her entrepreneurial efforts as a 99% Conference Fellow for 2013, and in 2011 she was inducted into the prestigious ACPA honor society with the Annuit Coeptis Emerging Professional award. She plans to dedicate her career to changing the way educators learn and grow, in hopes that if we combine our expertise in student learning and development with expertise from various industries and forms of inspiration we can come up with innovative solutions to the problems we currently face in education. http://www.courtoconnell.com/

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)
