High-impact practices (HIPs) have been shown to significantly improve student retention and academic achievement. The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) identify a number of high-impact learning practices (HIPs), including undergraduate research, collaborative assignments, learning communities, service learning, and study abroad. This certificate program explores the pedagogy that underwrites these practices. High-impact learning practices involve a significant investment of student effort over time with multiple interactions between faculty and students about substantive matters as well as opportunities for frequent feedback and structured reflection. This certificate program will help instructors take a fresh look at one of their courses and discover ways to up the HIP quotient.
This certificate program falls into three parts. First, participants will watch five short videos (approximately ten minutes each) and complete worksheets prior to the live conversation. Second, participants will participate in a live conversation. Finally, participants will submit revised course materials based on the Basically HIP program.
