This volume 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.

With a chapter devoted to each of the eleven HIPs, this collection offers guidance that takes into account the differences between e-learners and traditional on-campus students.

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.

The book provides guidance on how best to implement HIPs to increase retention and completion for online learners.

"High-Impact Practices in Online Education asks the right questions about online teaching and learning. This collection offers grounded, practical suggestions for evolving online pedagogy toward a purposeful form of teaching that offers possibilities beyond anything we've done until now."

Matthew Reed, Vice President for Learning - Brookdale Community College

High-Impact Practices in Online Education allows faculty and staff to begin to think deeply about how these practices, which have largely existed in the traditional, face-to-face environment, can be adapted and applied to engage students across all learning modalities. With chapters dedicated to each high-impact practice, reference to existing research and best practice literature, and strategies to consider when scaling these practices to the online environment, this book will revolutionize high-impact practices as we know them by making them truly accessible to all students.”

Stephanie M. Foote, Assistant Vice President, Teaching, Learning, and Evidence-Based Practices - John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education

“This timely and much-needed publication clearly shows that it is possible to engage learners in high-impact practices online. The book opens an entirely new realm of possibilities, in which instructors and learners can confidently delve into the digital world in a way that provides purpose, equity in learning, and success.”

Susana Rivera-Mills, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs - Ball State University
