Traveling the world to educate K12 students about the changing environment has been Dr. Aaron Doering's life dream. Over the past decade, Doering, professor of Learning Technologies and co-director of the Learning Technologies Media Lab (http://lt.umn.edu/), has educated millions of learners throughout the world through his travels bringing Adventure Learning to the forefront of education. Doering will speak about his expeditions crossing the circumpolar Arctic by dog sled and his project, Earthducation, which investigates the intersection of education and sustainability on every continent (http://chasingseals.com/). Together let's explore the world and understand the excitement about Adventure Learning!


The individuals involved with TEDxUMN have a passion for bringing together the great thinkers at the University of Minnesota and giving them the opportunity to share their ideas worth spreading and to discuss our shared future. We provide these great people the opportunity to share these ideas on a global stage and with an incredibly diverse audience. We believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.

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)
