Jeremy Short has taken his love of writing graphic novels and has developed it into a teaching tool through graphic textbooks. "I've yet to encounter a single soul who can recite a line from a textbook." Instead, he is looking to mix things up by escaping the "snooze-fest" associated with most textbooks. Short was named Researcher of the Year in 2010 for the College of Business at Texas Tech University prior to joining the faculty at OU.
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)
