How IMPACT Works

 

The following outlines what you will do if you apply and are accepted as an IMPACT Faculty Fellow:

  • As part of the IMPACT cohort you will be guided through individual consultations and the Faculty Learning Community.
  • You will create a development plan with milestones.
  • You will develop course learning outcomes through a consultative process.
  • You will learn about course redesign options by working with a team of instructional, technology, and assessment specialists.
  • You will participate in a Faculty Learning Community to learn and support each other.

Currently we have 62 courses and 72 faculty in the program for 11 colleges and schools across campus.

The following are principles upon which IMPACT is based...

Your project will:

  • Have a course redesign plan that recognizes that the need of each participant and each course is different.
  • Include innovation, implementation, assessment and institutionalization which are critical to success;
  • Focus on integrating into the Seven Principles For Good Practice in Undergraduate Education (PDF) (Chickering and Gamson, 1987), specifically that effective instruction
    • encourages contact between students and faculty
    • develops reciprocity and cooperation among students
    • encourages active learning
    • gives prompt feedback
    • emphasizes time on task
    • communicates high expectations
    • respects diverse talents and ways of learning
  • Be founded on faculty-focused principles, i.e., faculty:
    • Are the drivers for curriculum change.
    • Are ultimately responsible for identifying the learning outcomes.
    • Are provided support needed to focus their time and attention on learning, experimenting and implementing research-based changes in their classes.
