Active learning takes center stage at Purdue
More than ever before, Purdue students take classes that challenge them to dive in and get involved in learning. It’s called active learning, and it’s the opposite of traditional classes that have featured a teacher leading seated, silent students taking notes.
Situated in the heart of campus, The Wilmeth Active Learning Center will be the hub of Purdue’s active learning activities that involve team problem solving, group projects, role playing and other hands-on, interactive learning. When it opens in early August 2017, it will house classes and study spaces, as well as libraries for several academic areas. It also will feature the Au Bon Pain Café Bakery.
