IMPACT, course redesign, curriculum evaluation, learning objective refinement


Through the support of Purdue University’s “Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT)” program, MGMT 301: Management Career Lectures underwent a transformative redesign. Curriculum and resource evaluation, learning objective refinement and development, lesson content and assignment redesign, and incorporation of the Krannert School of Management “Launching Business Leaders” into the classroom experience has provided for a richer learning environment. The course has gone from two sections of 150 students sitting in a “cozy” auditorium to four sections of 60-70 students strategically placed in groups of six working on mini-cases, researching companies and industries, and providing team and large group feedback on career development exercises and topics. This was presented at the 2013 Midwest Association of Colleges and Employers (ACE) Conference in Chicago, IL. While this version only includes the introductory, conclusion, and IMPACT-related slides, the full presentation was presented in collaboration with colleagues from Ball State University and Indiana University, who reported on the INdorsed Career Ready Graduate program.
