TEDMED talks 2009

In my presentation at last week’s ACT meeting I mentioned the TED talks videos which are freely available to view and share on the web.  The TED talks are 15-18 minute presentations about ‘ideas worth sharing’ in science, technology, business, global issues, design and entertainment and well worth a look.  There’s an example of a TED talk below by Hans Rosling, Professor of Global Health at the Karolinska Institute, on HIV where he uses Gapminder to show the latest stats on HIV infection.  There are some others you can view in the vodpod widget in the sidebar of this page or you can go direct to ted.com

Next month in San Diego TED will be holding TEDMED 2009, the first TED dedicated entirely to talks on medicine and healthcare.  The talks will cover topics such as ageing, cancer, surgery, open research in medicine and communicating medical information. The TEDMED website has the full list of speakers and the titles of their talks. As with other TED talks these will be available online after the event. It should be worth taking a look at the TEDMED talks for general interest and it may be that some of the talks could be used in teaching resources.
