Throughout this academic year, we will offer a series of workshops organized around various “high-impact practices” (HIPs) as defined by extensive research by the American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). Using millions of data points collected via the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), HIPs are those teaching practices that have demonstrated significant educational benefit for students, especially those who are historically underserved and underrepresented in higher education. These practices include: capstone courses and projects, collaborative assignments and projects, common intellectual experiences, diversity/global learning, first-year seminars and experiences, internships, learning communities, service learning, community-based learning, undergraduate research, and writing-intensive courses.
We will advertise workshops on these subjects throughout the year, but for September, we will be offering this workshop:
Nurturing Excellence: A Workshop on How to Mentor and Advise Students
Research shows that mentorship and advising play a crucial role in shaping the academic, professional, and personal growth of students. This workshop aims to provide educators, mentors, and advisors with essential tools, strategies, and insights to guide and support graduate students on their academic journey effectively.
