Communicating Concepts

Posted by

Each week, from today until January 9th, we provide limited access to a different one of our 7 TOK Samplers from Ideas Roadshow‘s IBDP Portal that explicitly demonstrate TOK concepts from the front lines of research.  All TOK Samplers are inherently interdisciplinary, featuring experts across a wide range of disciplines.

From December 5th -11th we featured the TOK Sampler called Communicating Concepts, which focuses on the challenges and opportunities associated with the communication of knowledge. Each expert clip is roughly a minute in length and is paused briefly to highlight a sample knowledge question related to the material.

Featuring the following experts:

  • Nima Arkani-Hamed, Physicist, Institute for Advanced Study
  • Michael Berry, Prof. of Chinese Culture, UCLA
  • Stefan Collini, Historian and Professor of English, University of Cambridge
  • Carol Dweck, Psychologist, Stanford University
  • John Elliott, Historian, University of Oxford
  • Andy Hoffman, Professor of Sustainable Enterprise, University of Michigan
  • Martin Jay, Historian, UC Berkeley
  • Pankaj Mishra, Author
