Purdue Polytechnic Educational Research & Development
Learning is more successful when it’s in context, for a purpose, and connected to one’s values and aspirations. For today’s thinking economy in which access to knowledge is ubiquitous, students need to become lifelong learners, able to adapt to constant change and to solve complex problems.
For 2014-2015, our first year, we are developing new ways to learn. We aim to create a small-team "learn by doing" environment and practical project-oriented experience.
We invite you to read more about Purdue Polytechnic Educational Research & Development and our values and goals. We are #EducatingThinkers.
