The RISE Program and the various academic units (e.g., Center for Research and Learning, Study Abroad, Center for Service and Learning, Themed Learning Communities, Internship Council) responsible for high impact educational practices (HIPs) were asked by our Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer to develop a taxonomy to serve as a framework to guide andenhance the already great work being done on our campus with engaged student learning. The newly designed taxonomies offer instructors guidance on quality course design, implementation, assessment, and improvement. We view the taxonomies as an instrumental faculty/staff professional development tool and are pleased to announce that the RISE Program and the Center for Teaching and Learning have created a series of workshops for the 2017-18 academic year to introduce faculty/staff to the taxonomy guides and share more widely the value of HIPs. Presenters will include but not be limited to those who participated in the creation of the taxonomies, members of the RISE Community of Practice, and instructors who have successfully used them. View all of the taxonomies.
This is one in a series of four workshops that will address high-impact educational practices (HIPs), sponsored by the RISE Program and the Center for Teaching and Learning. This inital workshop will highlight the essential elements of HIPs, how they are being practiced on our campus and existing resources.
