Invitation: HIPs Workshop Webinar (Apr. 30, 2021. 10:30 a.m.)

Posted on behalf of Dr. Carleen Vande Zande, Associate Vice President, UW System Office of Academic Programs & Faculty Advancement

After a two semester delay, I am pleased to announce a HIPs Workshop webinar by Dr. Katie Linder titled, Implementing High Impact Practices Across Modalities, to be held on April 30, 2021 from 10:30 AM – Noon (CDT). Dr. Linder is currently an associate dean at Kansas State University’s Global Campus. Previously, she directed the award-winning Ecampus Research Unit at Oregon State University.

Workshop Description

The concept of High-Impact Educational Practices (HIPs) has been around for years, but the conversation about transitioning HIPs into online and blended/hybrid environments is just getting started. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Katie Linder, a co-editor of High-Impact Practices in Online Education, will guide participants through the steps needed to create an HIP implementation action plan that is applicable in face-to-face, blended/hybrid, and online classrooms. Participants will also learn more about the state of the research for HIPs and have the opportunity to discuss tips and strategies for incorporating various HIPs across modalities. Each participant will walk away with some new ideas for how to incorporate HIPs into a range of classroom settings as well as an increased awareness of how the constellation of HIPs can positively impact student learning across the modalities.

Additional details and registration information can be found at The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 28, 2021.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the workshop. Contact if you have any difficulties registering.

High-Impact Practices Workshop Series

Researchers have identified eight characteristics of high-impact practices (Kuh & O’Donnell, 2013).

This Spring the Center will run workshops on four of them, with a particular focus on how these characteristics may enhance equity and inclusion in your course. The goal of these workshops is for instructors to work toward implementing these elements in their classes.

Taken independently, they are of interest and will each focus on a characteristic of teaching that is inherent to all classes. Added together, instructors will be closer to discerning the depth of the impact their classes make on learning for all students.

HIPs @ 10 Reading Series: URSCA

Join us for our third High-Impact Practices @ 10 reading series discussion on February 18, 2019 from 3:00-4:30 PM in MAC Hall 201 or virtually via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra!

The Association of American Colleges and Universities High-Impact Practices turn “10” this year! In honor of that milestone, and an initiative sponsored by UW System and the National Association of System Heads, we’ll highlight readings about Civic Engagement, Undergraduate Student Research and more with the help of the NASH Grant Leadership team.

Ryan Martin will lead a discussion on two chapters from Nancy H. Hensel edited collection, Course-Based Undergraduate Research: Educational Equity and High-Impact Practice.

HIPs @ 10, Nov. 7 from 10-11 CL 204 H

Peter Levine (Assoc Dean of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Tufts University) argues that the answer to the fractiousness of our society and the breakdown of civil society lies with greater civic engagement. We’ll be discussing his book We are the ones we have been waiting for, which considers both the values that we need to re-invigorate our society as well as strategies to strengthen participatory democracy through greater civic engagement.

Due to busy schedules, we’ve moved this HIPS @ 10 reading series to November 7 from 10-11 am in CL 204 H
