Most academics are aware of TED talks – a global initiative to make short (18 minutes or less) speeches on important and interesting topics available for free via the worldwide web. This can be a great resource for academics who want to introduce videos into their teaching. Annie Murphy Paul: What we learn before we’re born , Tyrone Hayes + Penelope Jagessar Chaffer: The toxic baby? and Alexander Tsiaras: Conception to birth — visualized. I have used the last video by Alexander Tsiaras often and with great effect to help make the case that the unborn child is fully human.
