faculty development course redesign purdue impact
IMPACT at Purdue University works with instructors to redesign large-enrollment, foundational courses with the aim of engaging students more fully in their learning and creating a more student-centered environment, with the expectation that this will improve student success. IMPACT faculty are guided through a semester-long "course" of FLC (Faculty Learning Community) sessions based on IMPACT's design model. Faculty also work with a small support team that provides guidance and expertise in the areas of educational technology, instructional design, information literacy, and learning assessment. Year-three program and course assessment measures and results will be discussed.
Outcomes: Discuss IMPACT's program of support for faculty in creating student-centered, active learning * List the program and course assessments used by the IMPACT program * Formulate useful takeaways for your institution's faculty development programs
