Two College of Technology professors are participating in the Spring 2012 cohort of the University’s IMPACT program.
IMPACT (Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation) was launched by the Provost’s Office in 2010 in an effort to improve rates of course completion and retention in foundational courses. Faculty in the program learn about course redesign options by working with a team of instructional, technology and assessment specialists. They also participate in a Faculty Learning Community.
Technology professors participating and the transformed courses are:
- Mark French, associate professor of mechanical engineering technology, MET 213: Dynamics.
- Craig Miller, professor of computer graphics technology, CGT 163: Introduction to Graphics for Manufacturing.
