What Makes an Educational Experience High Impact?

What Makes an Educational Experience High Impact? Find out, Monday, Oct. 8, 2018 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the 1965 Room, University Union, Green Bay Campus. The presentation will be led by UW System Presenters: Carleen Vande Zande, associate vice president, Academic Programs & Educational Innovation and Fay Y. Akindes, director, Systemwide Professional & Instructional Development. Register here.

The workshop explores a set of quality indicators for high-impact practices (HIPs) as proposed by the National Association of System Heads (NASH). These quality indicators are meant to both guide and reflect the nature of high-impact practices across programs and institutions that will promote learning for all students. As a participant in the Taking Student Success to Scale grant, the UW System has the opportunity to apply these quality indicators to existing or newly designed high-impact practices to examine how these attributes are affirmed or how they may guide further refinement of the HIPs offerings on our campuses. Participants will then complete a mapping activity to apply the quality indicators to their own high-impact practices and reflect on how their HIPs align with the new vision for HIPs.

The workshop ends with a look at integrative learning, an opportunity for students to demonstrate how they apply, analyze, and synthesize their knowledge in the HIPs learning experience. Participants will examine integrative learning outcomes and assessment practices.
