The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries invites you to attend its 2016 Visiting Scholar program. 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 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. Michael Flierl is the Purdue University Libraries’ Information Literacy Instructional Designer. He works with instructors as well as on programmatic aspects of IMPACT.
