Building and Scaling an Institutional HIPs Initiative

Building and scaling an institutional high-impact practices (HIPs) initiative at any institution is full of familiar challenges as well as many that may be less familiar (addressing marketing needs, tracking experiences, etc.)

March 4, 2021

Building and scaling an institutional high-impact practices (HIPs) initiative at any institution is full of familiar challenges (gaining buy-in, supporting faculty, ensuring equity, assessing quality) as well as many that may be less familiar (addressing marketing needs, tracking experiences, etc.). This webinar shares Georgia College’s efforts to address these challenges through GC Journeys, a faculty-driven HIPs initiative. GC Journeys asks students to complete five high-impact practices during their undergraduate experience and maps their core curriculum to AAC&U’s Essential Learning Outcomes.

This webinar also explores the scope of challenge and opportunity associated with launching ambitious, large-scale HIPs initiatives. The panel shares best practices to support such initiatives and include the voices of faculty who are leading these transformative experiences.
