Description: In their work at the Wabash College Center for Inquiry and leading the Higher Education Data Consortium, Blaich and Wise have helped scores of colleges and universities understand and document gains from experiential learning. Their scholarship provides a valuable critical friend perspective to the current HIPs literature, helping educators appreciate which findings support reform, and where continuing investigation would be most helpful.

Title: Assessment as Culture Management and Professional Development
Date: Friday, August 25

Time: 1:00 – 2:15 pm EDT/12:00 – 1:15 pm CDT/11:00 – 12:15 pm MDT/10:00 – 11:15 am PDT

Description: For genuine scale and access to high-quality HIPs, how much fidelity to the model is enough?  How can it be assured? Learn how the College Board uses a process model and theories of action to scale best practices at the secondary level, and how such thinking applies to HIPs administration embedded into professional development at a large public university.  The emerging toolkit could help higher education identify and institutionalize HIPs with consistency, fidelity and confidence, while strengthening the basis of inquiry and evidence.

Presenters: Jennifer Merriman, College Board and Jerry Daday, Western Kentucky University

Description: Recently dubbed the Eleventh HIP by AAC&U and George Kuh, ePortfolios are also emerging as the likeliest way institutions may know whether a given practice was genuinely high impact, in terms not only of persistence and  graduation, but also of demonstrable and self-aware learning. This session will explore how our graduates’ employability may benefit from the same source of evidence.

Presenters: Bret Eynon, La Guardia Community College and Maure Baker, Performance Assessment Network

Title: Measuring the Ineffable
Date: Friday, September 8

Description: Frontline student affairs educators and instructional faculty report that the real gains of high impact practices go beyond traditional cognitive learning, by strengthening students’ capacity for self-control, agency, mindfulness, compassion, and belonging – high level neurological functions that are prerequisite to college success. Intentional development of these noncognitive proficiencies, cultivated by participation in HIPs, may be our most powerful means of closing achievement gaps and accelerating learning for all students.

Presenters: Marilee Bresciani, San Diego State & UNESCO MGIEP and Matthew Smith, CSU Dominguez Hills
