- Purdue data visualization tool allows high school students to see path to career
The Purdue Center for Economic Education is seeking partner schools to pilot a new data visualization tool that shows high school students a path to a career based on their interests and abilities. The tool uses data from Purdue University college graduates
to link college majors to careers, showing the pathway students took on their way to their profession, as well as several characteristics of students in each major and occupation such as average SAT scores, college GPAs, and salaries of graduates.
- Alumni IMPACT: Redesigned course links students with professionals
When Professional Career Management was most recently redesigned in 2017 to continue refining it from an upper-division course into one for freshmen and sophomores, one key goal was to restructure it under the IMPACT (Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic
Course Transformation) model by incorporating more active and collaborative learning as well as other student-centered teaching and learning practices and technologies that foster student engagement and competence. For Krannert staffers and instructors, that
meant involving alumni and professionals at multiple stages of the course.
