In this interactive session, attendees will learn about rethinking best practices to align with high-impact practices (HIP) through embedding into your institution’s course offerings. Research shows that students can produce better writing when a librarian AND a writing specialist are embedded into the course. By combining efforts with the instructor and support staff, students benefit from individualized, consistent support with high-impact practices that support retention.  

  • Participants will play HIP Bingo.       
  • Participants will respond to discussion questions in small groups.      
  • Participants will brainstorm about colleagues who would be good collaborators for embedding in their courses.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will learn about HIPs. and apply them to their departments’ best practices.

  • Participants will discuss how an embed program would impact their student support and retention.
