Chan has enjoyed teaching students from all over the world
Yee Kong Peter Chan received his BS from BYU–Hawaii in 1995, then his MS in instructional science in 2001, and then his PhD in IP&T in 2003 from BYU's McKay School of Education. Since graduation, Chan has enjoyed teaching students from all over the world at BYU–Hawaii, where he created and conducted a program in instructional design and development. He has had great joy seeing his students move on to successful careers and graduate studies in related areas. At BYU–Hawaii, he facilitated international collaborations with institutions in Brazil, China, Mongolia, and other areas in Asia. Chan credits BYU for his professional opportunities and success. “For a large part, these opportunities have come not only because of the training I had in the IP&T department but also due to professional and personal nurture from my teachers. My goal is to mimic the mentorship of these masters.” He and his wife, Chin Chin Joyce Tan, are the parents of three children.
