High-impact practices (HIPs) are proven learning experiences that foster more engaged learning, student retention, advanced skill development and degree completion. Promising “high-impact” activities, including first-year seminars, common intellectual experiences, learning communities, service learning, writing-intensive courses, collaborative assignments and projects, undergraduate research, study abroad & other experiences with diversity, internships, and capstone courses and projects, have great potential to enrich undergraduate education. In this session we'll introduce HIPs and why these practices matter, review what we’ve learned about HIPs and what makes them effective, and discuss strategies for incorporating HIPs into courses, scaffolding across the curriculum, and integrating them throughout the student experience.
