This presentation will outline and describe the how efforts that the Graduate Studies in Education program at Southern Utah University, engages in and incorporates these high-impact practices. We are encouraged that educational research suggests that these practices increase rates of student retention and student engagement. The rest of this presentation will explore in more detail why these types of practices are effective, which students have access to them, and, finally, what effect they might have on different cohorts of students. Focus and attention will be paid to demonstrate the alignment of these practices across graduate and undergraduate programs. Comparisons and experiences will be addressed as well regarding how these practices are addressed in both face-to-face and online learning environments.view more
