Flying Solo, and Big Ideas

Well, it seems as if this is a big TVO week for me. Last spring, I sat down with producer Wodek Szemberg for a long conversation about a wide variety of topics. This conversation (as well as conversations with many other people) are being sliced and diced into a series of minute-and-a-half interstitial clips called Flying Solo that will be broadcast on TVO throughout the day. My first is on The Future of Belief, and will be on-air tomorrow, November 27 at 21:50:15. But you can see it here first:

And, even more exciting is the broadcast of my lecture, No Educator Left Behind, on Big Ideas this Saturday and Sunday, November 29 and 30, at 16:00. This was a keynote I did for Centennial College back in June (and will be repeating at Ontario University Institute of Technology next February), and was also the Bill Murphy Distinguished Keynote address at the National Extension Technology Conference in Raleigh, NC last April.

If you tune in, please let me know what you think!

hey! I tuned in! actually quite by accident, regrettably I miss part of the history lesson (do you know if this lecture [or others you've done pertaining to education or the generation gap, or faith] will to posted somewhere?[other than this site of course])
It's given me a lot to think about, so thanks!
I wonder though if you've considered some of the implications of this view?
Like how/if universities and other educational institutions should adapt to new generation, and what that might look like?

Or with this new view on authority can the notion of progress exits?

Not that I'm looking for answers to these specific questions, mostly I'm just wondering assuming you are right, what should happen and what do you think the future looks like?

Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Tim. The full lecture is indeed posted on TVO's website.

Most of my stuff is posted with links over there on the right side of the screen. As well, my research focus has to do with thinking about how these structuring institutions to which I refer are themselves structured. You can read lots more about that if you click on the label, Valence Theory.
