High-Impact Practices (HIPs)

Internships

"Internships are another increasingly common form of experiential learning.  The idea is to provide students with direct experience in a work setting--usually related to their career interests--and give them the benefit of supervision and coaching from professionals in the field.  If the internship is taken for course credit, students complete a project or paper that is approved by a faculty member" -- George D. Kuh

HIPs Rubric update!

The High Impact Practices (HIPs) Rubric was uploaded to all Fall 2019 D2L course shells on Tuesday, October 22. Faculty opt in to using the HIPs rubric by attaching it to an assignment folder. 

Step-by-step instructions for attaching the rubric to an assignment can be found at: https://ppcconline.blog/dwkb/adding-hips-rubric-to-assignment-folders/

What is Rubric for?

Faculty and instructors assess student learning in the High Impact Practice project or reflection assignment using this rubric. 

TIP: The rubric is not designed for grading purposes, just assessment of HIPs student learning. Attached is a robust FAQs and guide for the rubric.

About the Rubric and HIPs

The rubric addresses the Eight Key Elements of High Impact Practices: Challenge and Time (category 1), Interactive and Diversity (category 2), Feedback and Reflection (category 3), Real World and Public (category 4). Read more on these principles at https://libguides.ppcc.edu/hips . Instructors could mirror the wording in the rubric when designing the reflective assignment or when discussing the connections between course material and the HIPs assignment/project with students. 

Use of the rubric in HIPs courses is expected.

Developed by the Health and Science division to assist in the evaluation of students and their perceptions of the CWP

HIPs Faculty Specialists are peer experts who are ready to assist fellow faculty to implement or improve high impact practices.
