Give Students a Compass
Focus each student’s plan of study on achieving the Essential Learning Outcomes and assess progress
Personal development planning is a process which will enable students at IUPUI to understand, implement, and mark progress toward a degree and career goal by creating and following a personalized plan that is open to revision and reevaluation every semester in collaboration with an academic advisor or faculty member.
The personal development plan is designed to foster:
1. Goal commitment (student commitment to earning a degree)
2. Academic achievement (through goal setting and planning)
3. Curricular coherence and meaning
4. Each of these goals is a way to foster student development
“I thought the PDP was a great idea. It helps you think about the processes you [use] to study and complete assignments. It helped me to revise my goals and come up with some new ones. The best part was the peak performance plan because it helped map out the future classes so that you know where you need to go and where you have been.”
