Making an IMPACT: Transforming Academic Courses through Student-Centered Teaching



The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries invites you to attend its 2016 Visiting Scholar program on Thursday, April 21, 2016, beginning at 10:00 a.m. on the second floor of Love Library South, Room 218. The library is hosting three speakers from Purdue University who are affiliated with the Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT) program at Purdue University. The IMPACT program is a collaborative campus program that was launched in December 2010 by the Provost’s Office. The goal of IMPACT “is to achieve a greater student-centered learning environment by incorporating active and collaborative learning as well as other student-centered teaching and learning practices and technologies into large enrollment foundational courses.” Over 200 courses have been redesigned since the program’s inception.


Clarence Maybee, Assistant Professor of Library Science and the Libraries’ IMPACT coordinator, will give the keynote address from 10:00 am – 11:30 am. In the afternoon (2:00 pm – 3:30 pm), he will be joined by his colleagues, Catherine Fraser Riehle and Michael Flierl, for a panel discussion. Catherine Fraser Riehle is an Associate Professor of Library Science and is a liaison librarian for communication, human development and family studies, and women’s studies. She has served as a member of various IMPACT teams since 2011. She has conducted classroom research with some of the instructors she has worked with in the program. Michael Flierl is the Purdue University Libraries' Information Literacy Instructional Designer. He works with instructors as well as on programmatic aspects of IMPACT.
