Closing Remarks

Iron Chef Pedagogy Competition

Combining the concepts of popular TV chef battles, such as Iron Chef and Chopped, faculty teams will be formed to see who can create the best solutions for teaching and learning challenges in our Iron Chef Pedagogy Competition.

  • Each team will receive a theme – a teaching and learning scenario to explore in the classroom. Teams will then enhance the theme with instructional tools, support, and resources.
  • Teams will have 20 minutes to collaborate on a solution that includes the theme. Additional tools will be provided, including technology to capture your key points and cite research.
  • Teams will have 10 minutes to present their solutions to a panel of judges, who will use a rubric to test the best solution. The audience will have an opportunity to vote on the best solution. The combined scoring will be the winner.
  • Winning teams from the morning and afternoon session will receive a prize.
