Professor Calls for iOme Challenge in Every Classroom!
A month into Dr. Tures’ International Political Economy class, iOme inquired whether he would be interested in taking part in the 2012 Challenge. He consulted his students about the idea, and to his surprise, “they accepted the challenge.” The contest deadline was in a month, but as Tures noted: “the lure of competition was too much.”
The team from LaGrange used the “Mythbusters” theme to get their message across in an engaging way and also shared their findings and video with an audience at a public event on campus.
For Tures and his students, participating in iOme has been a transformative experience.
So we asked him to prepare a “faculty module” that would allow every college professor across the country to seamlessly incorporate iOme’s Annual Challenge into their course syllabi.
Whether you teach Political Science, Economics, Business, Finance, Law, Film, Communication or any other discipline, check out our iOme Syllabus Add-On. And if you are still not convinced, we ask you to reconsider and check out five reasons why iOme Challenge should be in your syllabus.
