    I am trying to find the lady's name who was the Keynote Speaker at the EdTA National Conference in Nashville.  She was from MIT I believe and was talking about the use of the arts, particularly theatre, in developing empathy in the people who do research and work in science.  Does anyone remember her name or know who might know?

    Thank you!!

    Randy,

     

    The 2017 Conference keynote you are seeking is Patricia Raun.   She teaches at  theVirginia Tech University's Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability, where she teaches leadership skills distilled from    from actor training.  Her wonderful speech is attached here.

     

    Best regards,
