The term “High-Impact Practices” (or HIPs) refers to certain teaching and learning practices that have been shown to be beneficial for college students from many backgrounds. These practices take several different forms but research suggests they all can increase rates of student retention and student engagement. However, many HIPS also require additional investment from faculty who may not have the time or background knowledge to engage with students in these deeper ways. In this Lunch and Learn, the Directors of the Sage Project, National Scholarships and Fellowships, and Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities will discuss the high-impact practices their programs support and the resources available to help faculty implement HIPs effectively.
As a result of attending, faculty will be able to…
- Define High-Impact Educational Practices
- Formulate a plan for engaging students in at least one High-Impact Practice
- Identify where to get additional information about HIPs on campus
Registration is required. This event is part of a series New Frontiers in Higher Education.
