Learning Beyond The Classroom

LBC Blackboard site offline on July 6. Reopening on Brightspace - July 13.

If you are enrolled in Learning Beyond the Classroom, please do the following by June 28:

  1. Check your submissions to Blackboard. If you have received '0' points on a submission, you have probably been asked to add something to your report. Please do what is required by June 28. Although your score and report will be transferred to Brightspace, the feedback to learner notes will not, and you will not know what you need to add to earn credit for the activity.
  2. Make sure you have copies of all your submissions to Blackboard in case something does not transfer as expected.
  3. If you are graduating in August 2020, make sure to have completed the requirements for the Certificate by June 20.
  4. Access to Learning Beyond the Classroom on Blackboard will be unavailable starting July 6. Once the transfer is complete, hopefully by July 13, the site will reopen in Brightspace.

If you have questions, contact LBC at lbc@purdue.edu

Campus Events
PSG Survey: Students’ Perspectives on Plan for Fall 2020 April 2020

The open-ended question asked about students’ responses to President Daniels’ letter on April 21st regarding the plans to resume classes on campus.

  • Vast majority of students agreed with the plan to resume classes on campus
  • There was a large minority who emphasized the idea of students, faculty, and staff having a choice between in person or online
  • Smaller number indicated desire for only online
  • Many reported feeling hope, relief, and excitement about the plans   · 
  • Most indicated an understanding that campus would need to operate and function differently with safety measures
  • Almost as if the safety measures were the cost of being able to be together
  • Solid minority were troubled by lack of recognition of vulnerable populations including—desire to do right by others:
  • their own family members/parents---concerns about traveling home students, faculty, staff with underlying conditions
  • faculty and staff who are older
  • Concerned that the information regarding safety measures required more details—did not offer a lot of information
  • With regard to safety measures students indicated:
  • Testing as crucial—although they questioned the scaling of testing all on campus and wondered if it was feasible
  • Quarantine—although they wondered about how practical it would be
  • Tracking—and yet a few expressed concerns about privacy
  • Concerned about crowded places such as dining halls and buses 
  • Although the questions did not ask about “supports” that were either helpful or missing, some points did emerge.
  • Even being on campus as a support
  • interactions with peers,
  • being able to ask questions of faculty in person,
  • being away from problematic stressors back home
  • generally more “resources” available
  • if not on campus it could mean “losing the humanity that drives the desire to explore and educate.”
  • Emphasis on the need for flexibility
  • attendance policies (e.g., illness)
  • due dates for assignments
  • in person requirements
  • Concerns about extracurricular activities, “normal Purdue traditions,” clubs, events and informal opportunities to interact outside of class   · 
  • Concerns about students with financial challenges—housing and food 
  • Concerns about students with mental health concerns—funding for CAPS
