Implementing High-Impact Practices Across Modalities
Dr. Katie Linder, Director of the Ecampus Research Unit, Oregon State University
The concept of High-Impact Educational Practices (HIPs) has been around for years, but the conversation about transitioning HIPs to 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, led participants through the creation of an HIP implementation action plan that is applicable in face-to-face, blended/hybrid, and online classrooms. Participants learned more about the state of the research for HIPs, had the opportunity to discuss tips and strategies for incorporating various HIPs across modalities, and left with an actionable plan for implementing one or more HIPs into a modality of their choice. For those who were unable to attend the session the recording and materials are provided.
