Kickoff for McKay School-sponsored Instruction Competition Jan. 11

The David O. McKay School of Education at Brigham Young University is sponsoring its second annual Innovative Instruction Competition, where groups of two to five students are challenged to create innovative lesson designs using new technologies. An informational kick-off meeting will be Tuesday, Jan. 11, from 11 a.m. to noon in 185 McKay Building. Pizza will be served.

Registration for the contest ends Feb. 18 and entries are due March 18. A total of $15,000 in prizes will be awarded to the most innovative teams. The two competition categories will include a teaching challenge and a data challenge.  

BYU students from all majors are welcome to participate. The first category is open to undergraduates only and the second is open to undergraduates and graduates. 

The competition was established to encourage creative teaching methods using new learning technologies and to give an opportunity for students to collaborate with faculty.

“We want to promote some out-of-the-box thinking about education problems,” said Associate Dean of Education Charles Graham. “We want to give students opportunities to apply their knowledge in a fun and creative way.”
