UNCG Librarians Lead Webinar for Association of College and Research Libraries on High Impact Educational Practices
First Year Instruction Librarian Jenny Dale and Associate Dean Kathy Crowe led a webinar hosted by ACRL (the Association of College and Research Libraries) on Aug 26. In the webinar, they described their work supporting the development and implementation of High Impact Educational Practices on the UNCG campus. This interactive webcast provided a review of research on how high impact practices foster student success nationally. Then, using learning communities (LCs) as a case study, it provided information on how LCs contribute to student retention and success, and recommended strategies for partnering with other campus units to promote high impact practices and then use the results to demonstrate the value and impact of the library on its campus.
