HIP Statewide Conference

TBR High Impact Practice Statewide Conference

The HIP Statewide Conference is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and administrators to come together to hear best practices in high impact practice implementation and assessment.

Foci of the statewide conference will be to share how TBR will be moving student participation in HIPs to a clearly articulated student transcript, how institutions conduct quality assurance practices of their HIPs, and what makes the first-year seminar high impact. Breakout sessions will include presentations focused on the 9 HIP taxonomies. Members of the Systemwide Faculty Learning Community (FLC) and faculty and staff with an interest in scaling HIPs at their institution are encouraged to participate in this conference.
