High-impact practices like undergraduate research, service learning, study abroad, and experiential learning have been demonstrated to improve student engagement, achievement, and retention. Similar results can also be achieved through first-year seminars, themed learning communities, and writing-intensive courses, as well as through collaborative and capstone projects. However, designing these experiences for students requires careful planning and access to the appropriate resources. This workshop will introduce IUPUI faculty to high-impact practices in general by briefly reviewing each of these practices and the considerations for implementing them. Faculty will also be directed to resources and offices on campus that support the design and delivery of specific high-impact practices.
