Lectures - Do Lectures

Lectures - Do Lectures | Beyond the Stacks | Scoop.it

The DO lectures are sponsored by the country (not the town) of Wales in the UK and seem to be like a more folksy version of the TED lecture series. From the About Us page:  "The idea is a simple one— that people who Do things can inspire the rest of us to go and Do things, too. So each year we invite a set of people down here to come and tell us what they Do. They can be small Do’s or big Do’s or just extraordinary Do’s. But when you listen to their stories, they light a fire in your belly to go and Do your thing, your passion, the thing that sits in the back of your head each day, just waiting, and waiting for you to follow your heart." I especially enjoyed Alistair Smith's "Why we need to change how we learn": http://thedolectures.co.uk/lectures/why-we-need-to-change-how-we-learn/
