Down the Hobbit Hole: Finding Connection in Online Learning: Corey Olsen at TEDxChesterRiver

When Corey Olsen, Assistant Professor of English at Washington College, MD, began podcasting as the Tolkien Professor, he discovered a fantastic new world opening before him at the crossroads of technology and academia, where distance has no bearing on learning and connection.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)
