High-impact practices (HIPs) engage students in learning activities inside and outside of the classroom. Students who participate in HIPs at UNT develop essential and meaningful learning because they can apply the skills learned to their futures! Students who participate in HIPs at UNT acknowledge the purpose and goals of their experiences which helps students develop marketable skills like critical thinking, communication (both oral and written form), teamwork, leadership, personal and social responsibility, and empirical and quantitative reasoning skills. HIPs are not just activities embedded in student experiences because successfully implementing HIPs requires intentionality and assessment.
Connect developed considerations for engaging students in high-impact practices that can support faculty in successfully implementing these experiences into their curriculum. For more information, contact Melanie.Mitchell@unt.edu or UNTcareerconnect@unt.edu
This resource helps faculty and staff determine how to integrate important elements of high-impact practices into the student experience.
