High-Impact Educational Practices

  • Learning communities
  • Writing-intensive courses
  • Collaborative assignments and projects
  • Undergraduate research
  • Diversity/Global Learning
  • Service learning, community-based learning
  • Internships
  • Capstone courses and projects

This guide provides access to resources for the scholarship of high-impact practices, including links to journals and databases that include research about high-impact practices.
