High-Impact Practices (HIPs) are techniques and designs for teaching and learning that have proven to be beneficial for student engagement and successful learning among students from many backgrounds. Through intentional program design and advanced pedagogy, these types of practices can enhance student learning and work to narrow gaps in achievement across student populations.

About the High-Impact Practices (HIPs) Institute

Limited to 20 participants, this institute will provide opportunities to exchange ideas with colleagues from across campus for integrating High-Impact Practices (HIPs) into your courses. Cornell faculty from different disciplines will facilitate discussions on successful HIPs approaches currently being used, solicit recommendations for lessons and class activities and guide the development of individual plans for incorporating HIPs into a course.

What? This ¾-day institute focuses on ten research-based instructional strategies and practices that increase rates of student engagement and student retention. Discussions will center around how to incorporate these high impact practices (HIPs) into your courses, and how to evaluate their effectiveness. Participants meet with faculty colleagues who have had success with HIPs along with related program representatives.
