How would you engage students if you were the instructor for one day?

Enter Cengage Learning’s “Instructor for a Day” contest, show us your skills and creativity, and you may win one of six scholarships!

It’s easy (and fun) to enter! In a one- to two-minute video, show us what you would do to get your fellow students engaged and involved in the learning process.

A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the top video, with the five runners-up each winning $500 scholarships as well!

How to Enter:

1.)  Make a creative, original video that’s one to two minutes in length. In the video, show us how you would engage students if you were an instructor.

2.) The explanation of your method of instruction must be clear (Click here for complete rules and detailed selection criteria). Either list the concept in the title of the video or explain it in the video itself. Upload your video to YouTube, and tag it using the hashtag #InstructorForADay. 

3.) After uploading your video to YouTube, click the "Enter Now" button below before midnight EDT on Sunday May 11, 2014 and include the URL of your YouTube video in the form.
