How Purdue Professors Are Building More Active and Engaged Classrooms
Beth McMurtrie, The Chronicle of Higher Education
A campuswide program called Impact at Purdue University is designed to reshape the undergraduate experience by helping Purdue faculty members build more active and engaged classrooms.
According to a recent outside evaluation, Impact-affected courses generally have higher end-of-course final grades and fewer students who withdraw or earn Ds and Fs. Students and faculty members also report greater satisfaction and more active engagement in such courses.
