Putting What Works to Better Use

Doug Lederman, Inside Higher Ed, Oct 06, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

There's a case to be made here, and the point of the article is that, despite the fact that we know these are high-impact academic practices, we don't, for the most part, employ them. The full list of "high impact academic practices" referred to in this report is:
  • First-year seminars
  • Common Intellectual Experiences
  • Learning Communities
  • Writing-Intensive Courses
  • Undergraduate research
  • Diversity/Global Learning
  • Service Learning/Community-Based Learning
  • Internships
  • Capstone Courses and Projects
There's no link from the Inside Higher Ed article, and information online about this study is very hard to find, but I got the full list here. Also, here is a PowerPoint presentation from the survey publisher outlining some of the results.
