Designing the Wheel: Built-in Instructional Technology | EDUCAUSE Review | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

Like many higher education institutions, Purdue University struggles to provide faculty with the support they need to incorporate sound use of instructional technologies in their courses. Two years ago Provost Tim Sands made a commitment to both instructional technologies and active learning, which included $100,000 funding for Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT). 

 

Goals of the IMPACT project include:

Develop a network of faculty knowledgeable in teaching and learning best practices and passionate about teaching through faculty learning communitiesBase course redesign on best practices and sound researchSupport faculty-led course redesign with campus-wide resources

IMPACT funding has been used primarily to incentivize faculty to participate in the program and complete the redesign and assessment of their courses. Each faculty member receives $10,000, disbursed to them as they meet program milestones.
