TEDxNSU is an annual event, featuring engaging lectures, videos, visual art, and interactive experiences, hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences at Nova Southeastern University. TEDxNSU showcases the scholarly work of members of the university.

What is TEDx?
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxNSU, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxNSU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. About TEDx

Theme: “Moments of Insight: Bursting the Bulb”
This theme was meant to inspire people to think about their own personal and/or professional learning moments—moments in which the metaphorical light bulb bursts in one's head. These are moments that have changed a person's world view about the way something was supposed to work. Moments when someone realizes that some discovery was bigger than a current theory or personal belief. Moments in which a person and/or a field of inquiry grew personally, professionally, scientifically, or spiritually. Moments that come to define a person or field of inquiry. We all have such moments, and sharing one's insight could revolutionize others' ways of thinking.
