Greetings from Green Bay! Our very own Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) is hosting a reading series about The Association of American Colleges and Universities’ High-Impact Practices (HIPs). HIPs turn 10 this year, and in honor of that milestone and an initiative sponsored by UW System and the National Association of System Heads, CATL will highlight readings about Civic Engagement, Undergraduate Student Research, ePortfolios, and more with the help of the NASH Grant Leadership team.
Our first meet-up will be Friday, Sept. 21 from noon-1PM, and will discuss a series of short, recent pieces evaluating the effectiveness of high-impact practices. We’ll host a synchronous meeting you can join from here: Join Skype Meeting
Those who are able to be in Green Bay, please meet in Theatre Hall 378 on the Green Bay Campus. If we need more room, we’ll move over to Theatre Hall 316. Here’s the campus map for parking information (we’ll be in building #2).
