Dan Pink, author of A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, is one of the most engaging speakers I've heard recently. You may not agree with everything he says, but you'll be thinking about it for a while.
Dan's most recent book, Drive, is about how to activate motivation in students, in workers, and in ourselves. He has graciously agreed to come to the weekly online meeting of the Wilkes Instructional Media program student group to talk about his ideas, and you're all invited to join us. It's Feb. 16 at 6:00 pm Pacific time (http://tinyurl.com/ycm8dj6).
