About the Plater Institute: The William M. Plater Institute on the Future of Learning was established in 2006 to recognize the leadership of Bill Plater who served as IUPUI's Executive Vice Chancellor and Dean of the Faculties from 1987 to 2006. This Institute provides an opportunity for the campus community and its constituents throughout the greater Indianapolis metro area to build upon his commitment to excellence in teaching and learning by collectively exploring significant issues in higher education that will influence the future of learning.
The goals of the 2013 Plater Institute are:
- Discuss theory of integrative learning and how to apply to practice
- Showcase best integrative learning practices at IUPUI
- Facilitate participant dialogue and provide methods of incorporation into courses/practices/ guidance/activities
