HIPs at TCC

High-Impact Practices for Student Success Grant Opportunity

To further our goal of connecting high-quality teaching and learning to student success and completion, the Office of the Provost and the Center for Professional Enrichment requests ongoing faculty involvement with High-Impact Practices (HIPs). It is our hope that faculty utilization of high-impact practices will assist Tallahassee Community College in the development of a cohesive and coherent curriculum that supports student retention and will have a broad impact of student learning, success, and completion.

What are HIPs?

High-Impact Practices are pedagogical practices that disproportionately enhance student learning. The many benefits include improved rates in success, retention, and graduation of diverse traditionally underrepresented students. These practices lead to greater success engaging students in their learning; developing life-long learners and involved global citizens; and nurturing an appreciation of diversity. The Association of American Colleges & Universities (AACU) has identified ten widely tested and beneficial High-Impact Practices:

First-Year Seminars & Experiences Diversity & Global Learning
Common Intellectual Experiences ePortfolios
Learning Communities Service Learning & Community-Based Learning
Writing-Intensive Courses Internships
Collaborative Assignments Projects Capstone Courses Projects
Undergraduate Research  

View the AACU document that further describes these practices. Proposals are not limited to the above list, but alternate practices must clearly fit within the parameters of a HIP.
