TEDxBelfast – Maureen Murphy & The Curse of Knowledge

TEDxBelfast Dr. Maureen Murphy

Aurion Learning’s Managing Director, Dr. Maureen Murphy, was a speaker at recent the TEDxBelfast event which took place in Belfast’s iconic Titanic Building on June 6th, 2012

Joined by a range of speakers from Belfast, Vancouver, Kenya and Dublin the rather fitting theme of the night was ‘Titanic Ideas’.

Maureen’s TEDxTalk was entitled ‘The Curse of Knowledge‘ and focused on the search for better models of learning. Maureen said that 70% of traditional work-based training is a waste of money and suggested better ways of making learning stick, including better use of story-based and social approaches, and noting being afraid to raise emotions.

About TEDx

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
