High impact experiences are not just for the benefit of the student

Schedule: Friday, December 01, 2017, 01:00 PM – 02:30 PM
Location: Medical Education Building, Room 3102
Instructors: Chris Houser
The literature on high impact learning experiences, such as undergraduate research and study abroad programs, tends to focus on the opportunity for students to have transformational experiences and develop career-relevant skills in critical thinking, a global perspective, collaboration, and communication. Developing and offering a high impact experience can feel quite daunting for faculty who feel the experience comes will come at the expense of their research, particularly when it is not clear how these experiences are also to their benefit. The purpose of this workshop is to use personal examples to describe how high impact experiences do not come at the expense of faculty research, and can lead to interesting and unexpected professional and personal growth opportunities for faculty. Participants will be given an opportunity to consider how they can benefit from the adoption of a high impact learning experience.
