Conference on High-Impact Practices
The Conference on High-Impact Practices showcases high-impact projects of faculty and staff developed and implemented during their work with the QEP. High-impact practices (HIP) are practices that improve higher-order thinking skills and academic success. They cultivate the deep learning, practical skills, and experience that a twenty-first century workforce demands of college graduates. A wide array of courses and disciplines across campus are represented through projects focused on one of the three platforms: collaborative learning, mentored undergraduate scholarship, and field based learning. Come out to celebrate and recognize with us the high-impact work taking place at SFA!
QEP Appreciation Event 2012
A time to express our appreciation to participants and their families with the Make an Impact @ SFA project. Attendees were served dinner by Aramark Catering and were formally thanked by the Provost and Director of the program. Then at the conclusion of the event they were given holiday goodies and gifts to show our gratitude for their hard work.
Culinary Cafe Luncheon
FLC participants enjoyed a delicious meal and were able to experience first hand high-impact practices being displayed outside of the classroom. The SFA Culinary Cafe is under the direction of Chef Todd Barrios who works with students in the Hospitality Administration Program within the School of Human Sciences, creating their own menu, making their dishes, and serving the public weekly for an affordable price.
