Details

Small changes in the classroom can have significant impact on student learning. Workshop participants will be introduced to high-impact practices (Kuh, 2008), or HIPs, that help students advance discipline-spanning knowledge and develop transferable skills. Having students reflect on their learning is at the core of successful implementation of such practices.

Utilizing integrative learning principles, the presenters will share examples of HIPs from different disciplines and identify classroom assessment techniques (CATs) that can be applied across a variety of academic settings. Participants will have opportunities to practice reflection and integrative learning while designing assignments and appropriate assessment methods for their classroom.
