Show Me the Learning: How High Impact Practices Influence Student Success

Terrel L. Rhodes

Vice President, Quality Curriculum and Assessment, AAC&U

Date: October 12, 2015

Overview

It seems as though every external higher education constituency is calling for more and better student success. Typically, this has translated to the lowest common denominator, i.e. enrollment and completion with little attention to quality of the learning. However, in the face of growing evidence that employers are concerned about learning proficiency, there is also growing evidence that engaging our students in high impact, highly effective learning enhances proficiency. This session will provide research and case studies supporting how High Impact Practices influence student success.
