WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Daniels is moving forward with one of his big initiatives. He wants to change the way learning occurs by having more group projects and fewer traditional lectures.
Daniels said research has shown that students learn better when they interact more with other students. He said 62 courses have already been changed, including some of the ones with the most students.
"For a few thousand dollars, or some modest amount, we can change a classroom. We can make it more interesting for the students, as the data says and have the students be more successful," said Daniels.
Daniels wants to have 300 courses transformed by 2017.
