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. This book contains the following chapters: (1) First-Year Seminars (Jennifer R. Keup); (2) Common Intellectual Experience (Jason D. Baker and Michael Pregitzer); (3) Learning Communities (Kathy E. Johnson, Amy A. Powell, and Sarah S. Baker); (4) Writing-Intensive Classes (June Griffin); (5) Collaborative Assignments and Projects (Robert John Robertson and Shannon Riggs); (6) Undergraduate Research in the Humanities (Ellen Holmes Pearson and Jeffrey W. McClurken); (7) Undergraduate Research in the Sciences (Kevin F. Downing and Jennifer K. Holtz); (8) Diversity and Global Learning (Jesse Nelson and Nelson Soto); (9) eService-Learning (Jean Strait and Katherine Nordyke); (10) Internships (Pamela D. Pike); (11) Capstone Courses and Projects (Zapoura Newton-Calvert and Deborah Smith Arthur); (12) ePortfolios (Jennifer Sparrow and Judit Török); and (13) High-Impact Practices and Library and Information Resources (Stefanie Buck).
