Upcoming ACRL Webcast – Collaborating for Student Success: Libraries and High Impact Educational Resources
Join ACRL for the e-Learning webcast “Collaborating for Student Success: Libraries and High Impact Educational Resources” on Wednesday, August 26 (1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Central).
In 2008 the Association of American Colleges and Universities published High-Impact Educational Practices by George D. Kuh. These high-impact practices (HIPs) have been well-researched and proven to contribute to student success and retention. Because of their success, HIPs have been implemented at many colleges and universities across the U.S. This interactive webcast will provide a review of research on how high impact practices foster student success nationally. Then, using learning communities (LCs) as a case study, it will provide information on how LCs contribute to student retention and success. It will also recommend strategies for partnering with other campus units to promote high impact practices and then use the results to demonstrate the value and impact of the library on its campus.
- Define high impact educational practices in order to understand their impact on student success.
- Determine best practices in working with high impact practices in order to ally with campus learning goals and strategic plans.
- Apply best practices on using data from work with high impact practices in order to demonstrate the value of the library.
