Dr. Temple Grandin Webcast Live on Sept. 4 from Landmark College
Watch Live at 7 PM on Sept. 4 by clicking the video link as Dr. Temple Grandin addresses the Landmark College community at Greenhoe Theatre in Putney. The Landmark Communications office explains the reason behind asking BCTV to produce a live webcast as well as recording the talk:
As expected, interest in Dr. Grandin's visit has been very high. Two days after Landmark College opened registration, all the tickets for members of the public had been reserved, and there was a substantial waiting list.
Landmark College set aside the majority of tickets for their students, faculty, staff, and alumni, because Dr. Grandin's work and the topic of her talk, "Different Kinds of Minds," are of such great importance to their community of "students who learn differently." Landmark College offers two- and four-year degrees to students with learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Dr. Grandin is arguably the world's most famous person on the autism spectrum and is a powerful advocate for embracing a diversity of thinking and learning styles.
Because of the high level of public interest, the College has worked with BCTV to offer a live stream of the event on YouTube as well as to make a recording of the talk available on YouTube and on the Landmark College website after the event. BCTV works with Landmark College to record the other speakers in their annual Academic Speaker Series, but this is the first time that they have broadcast a Landmark College event live.
