TEDxSpartanburg - Melissa Walker - "A New Vision for Building Community"

Melissa Walker is an award-winning teacher and scholar. She is the first faculty member at Converse to hold the George Dean Johnson, Jr. Chair in History. In 2007, the Carnegie Foundation for Teaching and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education named her the South Carolina Professor of the Year. She teaches a wide variety of courses in US History including The New South, The American Revolution in the Southern Backcountry, US Women's History, African American History, and others. She regularly works with students on original research—sometimes an independent project pursued by a single student and sometimes on large projects involving an entire class. 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)
