Purdue’s IMPACT (Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation) program is a University-wide initiative in which faculty redesign foundational courses around active, participatory student-centered teaching and learning. Enrolled faculty members work with support staff from the Center for Instructional Excellence, ITaP Teaching and Learning Technologies and Purdue Libraries to develop a new framework for their courses with the goal of increasing student engagement.
