Transformative Education 2.0

Purdue University is at an inflection point with respect to how data analytics, experiential education, and advanced technologies are expanding and redefining our concepts of a classroom, course modality, content delivery, learner engagement, and student success.

This is not a new realization. In 2017, the university began a series of conversations, listening sessions, and forums with the goal of creating the Road Map for Transformative Undergraduate Education. You can read about the initial efforts here.

Now, building on the momentum of the existing Road Map for Transformative Undergraduate Education, we are poised to make the value proposition of a ‘residential learning experience’ crystal clear as we re-think and renew the student experience.

Our goal for this next phase: Transformative Education 2.0, is to make Purdue University the most innovative residential learning program in the US among large research universities through:

  • Deep investment in high touch experiential learning
  • Creative use of advanced technologies and online learning to enhance residential courses and improve student success (i.e., time to degree; graduation rate,…)
  • Flexible cross-disciplinary degree and credential options
  • Integrated student life experiences and multiple work/learn options for paths to graduation
  • A data-driven ecosystem that improves retention, progression, graduation, and satisfaction

We will do that by investing in three projects:

  1. Road Map Foundations: Propelling Student Success
  2. Strategic Expansion of Experiential Education – Innovation College
  3. Enhancing Student Learning and Classroom Engagement at Scale – Innovation College
