Purdue Polytechnic Educational Research & Development

Students in the Design Lab

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.
