Extending Experience

Posted by

Until January 15th you were able to view a TOK Samplers from Ideas Roadshow‘s IBDP Portal. TOK Samplers explicitly demonstrate TOK concepts from the front lines of research and are inherently interdisciplinary, featuring experts across a wide range of disciplines.

Extending Experience emphasizes the vital role our past experiences play in shaping our current understanding.

Each expert clip is roughly a minute in length and is paused briefly to highlight a sample knowledge question related to the material.


The following experts are featured in this TOK Sampler:

  • Mathematical Intuition – James Robert Brown, Philosopher, University of Toronto
  • Self-Identification – David J. Goldberg, Sr Rabbi, Liberal Jewish Synagogue London
  • Learning From History – Michael Gordin, Historian, Princeton University
  • Observing the Universe – Justin Khoury, Physicist, University of Pennsylvania
  • Increased Tolerance – Elizabeth Loftus, Psychologist, UC Irvine
  • Our Need For Enchantment – Darrin McMahon, Historian, Dartmouth College
  • Losing Yourself – Miguel Nicolelis, Neuroscientist, Duke University
  • Playing Differently – David Politzer, Nobel Laureate Physics, Caltech
