Fostering Student Engagement and High-Impact Practices: What’s all the Hype?

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.

Learning Through Service: Instruction and Evaluation of Service Learning

Evaluation of Learning in CbSL Curriculum
Presented by Karen Larimer (School of Nursing)

CbSL is used in disciplines ranging from the sciences to the arts.  While  promoted at many institutions, it is still necessary to evaluate efficacy in achieving course objectives.  CbSL is employed at DePaul's MENP Program throughout the curriculum.  While it is believed that CbSL deepens learning, researchers asked:  does it improve learning in various learning domains? After receiving DPU’s Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Grant, we set out to develop an instrument to assess learning.  Sharing these preliminary results will inform the curriculum in the MENP Program  and be a basis for broader application. 

The Three Pillar Approach to Service Learning Instruction: Standardizing Course
Platforms 
 
Presented by Miranda Standberry-Wallace (College of Computing & Digital Media)

Learning by Playing: Gamification and Serious Games
The Path to Mastery Using Serious Games
In developing my graduate course on Serious Games at DePaul University, I conducted a yearlong study on the questions to be addressed by this new mode of learning and assessments.  
  • Can we encourage adults to experience failure in the spirit of learning? 
  • Can we build reflection and feedback loops into the learning process? 
  • Can we help adults further develop their capacities for social interaction and collaborative problem-solving?
In this presentation, I will present research that addresses these questions by the development and distribution of Serious Games by presenting evidence from studies conducted by Northwestern University and Temple University.

Presented by Dennis Glenn (School for New Learning)

Using Gamification to Create Engaging Classrooms  
Gamfication, the practice of applying game elements to real world situations, can be used to create fun, engaging, and motivating learning environments.

Understanding and Supporting Diverse Learners
High Impact Practices for All: Application to Non-Traditional Populations
High Impact Practices are shown to positively impact success for all students. The use of such practices with adult students, veterans, students with children and other non-traditional populations must be done intentionally and differently than with traditional populations. Attendees will discuss strategies that have worked and brainstorm additional methods.

Faculty and Staff Collaboration for Students with and without Disabilities
Our experience with collaboration has shown us how strong an impact the practice can have for students. By reaching out to faculty and staff throughout the university, we have enjoyed fruitful collaborative relationships that ultimately provide much room for student success. Most recent scholarship has looked at formal collaborations, while our experience has been more informal. We want to explore what has worked well for students when faculty and staff collaborate, and we hope to encourage more collaboration for the future. Our hope is to open the lines of communication, hear what others have done, and share our experiences.
