Online Book Club: High Impact Practices in Online Education

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 to Monday, March 1, 2021

 Registration end:  1/27/2021 11:59 PM



This text offers the first comprehensive guide to how high-impact practices (HIPs) are being implemented in online environments and how they can be adjusted to meet the needs of online learners. This multi-disciplinary approach will assist faculty and administrators to effectively implement HIPs in distance education courses and online programs.

A primary goal of High-Impact Practices Online is to share the ways in which HIPs may need to be amended to meet the needs of online learners. Through specific examples and practical suggestions in each chapter, readers are introduced to concrete strategies for transitioning HIPs to the online environment that can be utilized across a range of disciplines and institution types. Each chapter of High-Impact Practices Online also references the most recent and relevant literature on each HIP so that readers are brought up to date on what makes online HIPs successful.


Join the Digital Learning Instructional Design team each week (synchronous and asynchronous) to showcase, discuss, and brainstorm how high-impact practices can improve your online course. Videos from FGCU faculty/instructors expertly using High Impact Practices in their courses are included in each section of the Book Club.
