ED Talks

We are looking for six speakers for our upcoming event, ED Talks 2016: Big Ideas About Education, which are based on the TED Talks model. Each speaker will be given eight minutes to present his or her "ideas worth sharing."

The event is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 1, at the MTA Summer Conference at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The audience will be composed of MTA educators, faculty and staff who work in our public schools and colleges, state universities and on the campuses of UMass. No sales pitches, please.

The deadline to apply is Thursday, July 7. Applicants will be notified on Friday, July 8.

Those selected as speakers will run through their talks on Monday, July 25, at MTA Headquarters in Quincy. (This location is subject to change based on where the speakers live.)

There will be a rehearsal at the event venue on Monday, Aug. 1, and speakers will present between 7:30 and 9 p.m.
