High-Impact Practices Development Grant
High-impact practices, as described by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), focus on specific types of active and experiential learning practices that have been shown to have significant positive effects on student learning outcomes and engagement.
The goal of the High-Impact Practices Development Grant program is to provide faculty with funds to develop and improve high-impact practices in their courses.
