Workshop 1: Taking High‐Impact Practices (HIPs) to the Next Level

Thursday March 27, 2014 2:00pm to 5:00pm

This workshop will focus on strategies for moving beyond one stand-alone practice to a more intentional multi-level approach to HIPs activity. Participants will work on scaffolding high-impact practices across the curriculum and discuss how to connect entry-level HIPs with those that should follow in the middle and later years of an undergraduate career. One important area in scaffolding to consider is how to bridge academic affairs and student affairs in ways that nurture reflection on, and enhance learning throughout, all HIPs activities. Participants will explore strategies for engaging special populations, from first-generation college students to international students, in HIPs activities.
