Invitation to the 2011 Dean's Technology Challenge

The Dean's Teach with Today’s Technology Challenge is a challenge to School of Management (SoM) students to help us incorporate the newest and greatest Web 2.0 technologies into the curriculum. Students are requested to submit project proposals that include information on how they would incorporate new technology into an existing SoM course. In this challenge, students are the faculty and faculty are the students.

The topic for the lecture will be decided by the student, but it must be in a content area in business administration. This challenge is open to all students. Each student can enter a maximum of 2 proposals. Students can enter as individuals or as a team of 2 persons. Individual participants must be a business major. At least one of the students in a team must be a business major.

Selected submissions will receive a certificate plus monetary awards.

  • First Prize: $1000.00
  • Second Prize: $750.00
  • Third Prize: $500.00

Web 2.0 technologies include: mashups, social networking, blogging, twittering, podcasting, photo gallery, video gallery, etc. For more Web 2.0 application technologies, see

Submission Required:

  1. A hard copy of the proposal including implementation details (It may include a User Guide, if necessary), and
  2. Electronic copy of the proposal and all implementation materials.

Student submissions will be selected based on level of difficulty, novelty, practicality, ease of use, relevance, ability to convey knowledge and ability to retain participants' interest in the topic/course.

A short list of student submissions will be selected. The selected students will then demonstrate their "teaching with today’s technology" proposal through to make a 45 minutes presentation and demonstration to a panel of judges. The panel of judges will consist of academicians and may include IT professionals from industry. The award winning submissions will be decided at this phase.
