High Impact Practices (HIPs)

Liberal Arts Humanities Forum

The first annual Liberal Arts Humanities Forum (LAHF) is April 30th.

This co-curricular event is an exciting way for students to gain experience and to share out their work publicly.

This work should be assignments/projects that students are already doing in your classes.

Students will reflect on how what they’ve learned in the classroom translates outside of academia through the lens of the Pikes Peak Community College topic, Quality of Life: Happiness, Health, and Wellbeing

It’s open to all disciplines within and with connections to the Humanities and Liberal Arts: philosophy, history, humanities, literature, art history, music, theater, dance, sociology, communication, photography, graphic design, ethnic studies, social work and English… and much, much more.    

Two presentation options:

1.) An online submission to the EXPO, which is published in The Paper.

2.) Students can present their work live in ZOOM on April 30th. 

What faculty and instructors can do: 

1.) Inform students now.

2.) Help your students fill in the LAHF template.

3.) Coach students who want to present. Not for perfection, but so it is a positive experience for the student.

4.) Invite all students to support those who submitted or are presenting by reading and responding to published work, and by attending LAHF ZOOM session of classmate.

To submit:

  1. Use the LAHF template. If a performance piece (like a podcast with poetry or a video of performance art), email we will send instructions to transfer your file.  
  2. Email your work using to LAHF@ppcc.edu by April 23rd. If your file is too big for email you can submit through WeTransfer.Com. (It's free.)
  3. Be prepared to attend on April 30th for live presentations.

Announcements for students (cut and paste the information below right into your D2L shell)

Students,

We are excited to launch our first annual Liberal Arts Humanities Forum (LAHF) on the morning of April 30th; this co-curricular event is an exciting way for you to gain experience by sharing out what you are doing in your classes publicly. We ask that you as students, work closely with your faculty to edit your work for publication. We ask you to connect the ideas learned in your course with the Pikes Peak Community College topic, Quality of Life: Happiness, Health, and Wellbeing.

Since we are still in a middle of a pandemic, you will have an opportunity to present your work in two formats: live presentation format in ZOOM or through an online submission in collaboration with the EXPO and Parley. In the live ZOOM sessions, you will also have an opportunity to attend breakout sessions with other students.

We ask you to submit your entries by Friday, April 23rd in order for our committee to have time to display your work in an online format, and to organize the ZOOM event. Follow the following process:

  1. Submit your work:
    1. Use the approved LAHF template, which is found at http://ppccpaper.org/2021/03/08/lahfinfo/ OR Liberal Arts Humanities Forum - The Paper
    2. If a performance piece (like a podcast with poetry or a video of performance art), email us your intent, and we will follow up on additional instructions.
  2. Email your work using to LAHF@ppcc.edu by April 23rd.
  3. Be prepared to attend on April 30th if they choose to present live.
