High Impact Practices (HIPs) are research-based teaching strategies that are positively associated with higher retention and deeper learning for all students, especially students who are historically underrepresented in college success measures. At PPCC, we have seen an increase in semester to semester retention for all students of 7% for students who take at least one High Impact Practice course, and 18% higher persistence for students of color. The magic of High Impact Practices is engaging students in their learning through meaningful, real world application, socio-emotional experiences, and reflective practice. In this workshop, participants will explore what HIPs are, why HIPs work, and how to design a HIP assignment to use in their courses.
