Become an Affiliate of the Discovery Learning Research Center

The Discovery Learning Research Center (DLRC) invites members of the Purdue University community to consider becoming affiliates of the Center. The Learning Center in Discovery Park will be home to faculty and students engaged in interdisciplinary learning and discovery related to pedagogies and strategies relevant to the learning environment. The DLRC Affiliates Program seeks to foster and enhance communication among teachers, learners, and researchers to explore new, sometimes futuristic technologies, pedagogies, and strategies relevant to the learning environment.

Benefits of Affiliation

A database of affiliates names', expertise areas, and interests will facilitate contact between investigators and the formation of interdisciplinary research and learning teams. Affiliates will be informed of research and learning initiatives within the DLRC and of intra- and extra-mural funding opportunities. Ultimately, affiliates will benefit from the shared resources, including flexible laboratory, classroom, meeting, and office space in the DLRC in Discovery Park.

  • Meeting and office space for interdisciplinary learning projects
