Wiley Partners with TED
Date:11/12/2012

Hoboken, N.J. (November 12, 2012) John Wiley & Sons, Inc., (NYSE:JWa, JWb), a global provider of content and workflow solutions in areas of scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly research; professional development; and education, announced today a new collaboration with TED, the non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, to create and supply instructor materials for their recently launched series of "TED Studies."

To support the demand for integrating TEDTalks into classroom coursework, TED created TED Studies 21 collections of curated talks, organized into popular academic subject areas. Wiley will commission instructor materials to accompany TED's offering to educators. These materials will be offered at no cost with TED's video content on iTunesU, Wiley.com and other platforms around the world.

"Combining the TEDTalks series for academia with Wiley's high-quality, customized educational materials and expertise creates a powerful new resource for effective, flexible, and personalized teaching and learning," said Stephen M. Smith, Wiley's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Commissioned from leading authors who are specialists in their academic and professional fields, the instructor materials developed for each TED Study will provide teachers with valuable curriculum content. Each set of instructor materials will include contextualizing essays, assignment questions and activities, key debates, experiments, and glossaries relating to the TEDTalks. Links to related content from Wiley and other publishers will be included for lecturers to share with students, or for lifelong learners to interact with directly.

"Our goal is to provide teachers with innovative, engaging resources that can be used to supplement curricula and bring lessons to life," said Logan Smalley, Director of TED-Ed, TED's education-focused initiative. "TED-Ed is committed to lessons worth sharing, and we are thrilled to offer these 21 collections as a new resource particularly with the perspectives of highly regarded teachers and innovators from Wiley's vast network."
