Program Details

The focus of this contest is to provide IEC instructors with a nation-wide outlet to share their knowledge, expertise, professional understanding of key learning objectives that are presented in 4-year curriculum online courses in the IEC CMS. Winning submissions will be implemented in the 4-year curriculum to enhance the online content presented.

The goal of the contest is to encourage IEC instructors to produce material that will be a resource for the Association’s educational mission.  The intent is to upload the material to the IEC Content Management System (CMS). It will be placed in the content portion of the Lesson at the Objective level.  This material is to be an explanation of the objective.

A minimum submission will include an explanatory video. Additional materials such as narrations, text, photos, illustrations, PowerPoint slides, animations, skills assessment rubrics, scenarios and/or interactive resources will increase the overall score of the submission.
