High Impact Practices (HIPs)

Dear PPCC Team,

In our strategic plan, Destination 2022, promoting and supporting High Impact Practices is our priority action plan for “ensuring excellence in teaching and learning.”

High Impact Practices are proven to deepen student learning and increase persistence in college. These practices increase time on task, real life application of knowledge, socio-academic experiences, face time with the instructor, and integrated learning.

In collaboration with the VPIS, Divisions, and CETL, faculty specialists will support faculty as they adopt and improve on High Impact Practices. Faculty specialists are expert educators in a High Impact Practice. 

Please contact your deans or a faculty specialist about implementing High Impact strategies.
