One way that Adelphi shows its commitment to student learning is through its support for High Impact Educational Practices (HIPs). HIPs are a set of best teaching practices that have been shown to produce improved student learning outcomes and retention rates, particularly for traditionally underserved student populations.
Adelphi’s High Impact Practices Committee, in partnership with the Faculty Center for Professional Excellence, recently put out a call for proposals for a 2014-2015 HIPs Faculty Teaching and Learning Grant. The grant supports faculty in developing, implementing and assessing HIPs teaching practices at Adelphi. As part of the program, the FCPE is also partnering with the High Impact Practices Committee to provide faculty with professional development seminars on HIPs. We invite you to learn more about HIPs at Adelphi and how you can participate in HIPs seminars and programming by visiting our FCPE HIPs Web pages here.
Below are the ten HIPs that have been identified by NSSE founder George Kuh and recognized by the AAC&U for producing better learning outcomes, increased student engagement and higher rates of retention:
