Overview: UNL Libraries is hosting three speakers from Purdue University who are affiliated with the Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT) program. The IMPACT program is a collaborative campus program that was launched in December 2010 by the Provost’s Office. The goal of IMPACT “is to achieve a greater student-centered learning environment by incorporating active and collaborative learning as well as other student-centered teaching and learning practices and technologies into large enrollment foundational courses.” Over 200 courses have been redesigned since the program’s inception. This outstanding program has received national attention and awards, and we are thrilled to host these speakers!
