Disruption in education topic for Clayton Christensen at annual BYU lecture March 22

The annual Benjamin Cluff Jr., Lecture at Brigham Young University will feature Clayton Christensen, the Kim B. Clark Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, as he presents, “Theories of Disruption in Education” Thursday, March 22, at 11 a.m. in the Assembly Hall of the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center.

Christensen studied at BYU and earned his MBA and DBA degrees from the Harvard Business School. In 1997 Christensen won the Global Business Book Award for the Best Business Book of the Year with "The Innovator’s Dilemma," a book that was translated into more than 10 languages and become a New York Times bestseller.

The lecture and the award presentation that will follow are held yearly in honor of Benjamin Cluff Jr., the first president of BYU, who was an academic innovator during his 12-year administration. Cluff’s legacy included a tradition of inviting renowned scholars to make presentations to the university faculty and students.

The David O. McKay School of Education celebrates this tradition by inviting honored scholars and educators to lecture at this yearly event. Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend.
