UCF aims to provide students with the best undergraduate education in the state of Florida. To support this goal, the university introduced two new High-Impact Educational Practices (HIPs) Course Designations to go along with the existing Service-Learning (SL) designation: Integrative-Learning Experience (IE) and Research Intensive (RI).
High-Impact experiences give students an opportunity to excel in and out of the classroom. These new designations are available to help faculty promote their high-impact courses and to allow students to quickly identify them during registration. For more information on the new Integrative-Learning Experience (IE) or Research Intensive (RI) designations:

- Research Intensive (RI): https://our.ucf.edu/faculty/research-intensive-courses/
Faculty interested in developing or revising a course to prepare to apply for the Integrative-Learning Experience (IE) or Research Intensive (RI) designation in spring 2020 have the opportunity to apply for this four-session workshop. Participants will hear from faculty experts and work hands-on with their peers to create course plans and assignments.
Space is limited. To apply to participate in the workshop series, please send a brief statement (no more than 300 words) describing which of your courses you plan to workshop, in which designation track (Integrative-Learning Experience or Research Intensive) you wish to participate, and whether you are developing a new course or revamping an existing course. If you already have a syllabus for your course you may also choose to submit it with your statement.
(Don’t need the workshop and are ready to apply for a designation? Fall 2019 submissions are due September 13).
