Provost to focus on teaching in luncheon address

Purdue faculty, staff, administrators and students on March 21 can attend a luncheon with a keynote address by the provost that will focus on teaching and learning methods at Purdue.

The luncheon, sponsored by IMPACT (Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation), will last from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. It will be held in Purdue Memorial Union, East and West Faculty Lounges.

Tim Sands, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, will give the keynote address. Sands will discuss, among other things, how the IMPACT program is changing the way faculty members are teaching and the way students are learning at Purdue.

Registration for the luncheon is required and will be limited to 200. It can be found at http://changingclassroomluncheon.eventbrite.com.

The luncheon is part of a daylong conference called "The Changing Classroom," which is sponsored by the Center for Instructional Excellence (CIE). Luncheon attendees are not required to attend the conference but are welcome to do so.
