BEST PRACTICES SERIES

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced a new collaboration with TED, the non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, to create and supply instructor materials for its recently launched series of "TED Studies." To support the demand for integrating TEDTalks into classroom coursework, TED created TED Studies - 21 collections of curated talks, organized into popular academic subject areas. Wiley will commission instructor materials to accompany TED's offering to educators. These materials will be offered at no cost with TED's video content on iTunesU, Wiley.com, and other platforms.

Leading authors who are specialists in their academic and professional fields have been commissioned to create the instructor materials developed for each TED Study. Each set of instructor materials will include contextualizing essays, assignment questions and activities, key debates, experiments, and glossaries. Links to related content from Wiley and other publishers will be included for lecturers to share with students, or for lifelong learners to interact with directly.
