UCF aims to provide students with the best undergraduate education in the state of Florida. To support this goal, the university is introducing two new High-Impact Practice 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 three designations are available to help faculty promote their high-impact courses and to allow students to quickly identify them during registration. The application process to designate a course is planned to begin in fall 2018. For more information on the three course designations, visit the Division of Teaching and Learning Website.

Faculty interested in developing or revising a course to prepare to apply for the designation in fall 2018 have the opportunity to apply for this five-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 200 words) describing which of your courses you plan to workshop, in which designation track (IE, RI, or SL) you wish to participate, and whether you are developing a new course or revamping an existing course.

For questions, or to apply, please contact QEP@ucf.edu.
