An International Center for Research on Engaged Learning
Introduction

The Center for Engaged Learning brings together international leaders in higher education to develop and to synthesize rigorous research on central questions about student learning.

Researchers have identified “high-impact” educational practices – study abroad, undergraduate research, internships, service-learning, writing-intensive courses, living-learning communities, and so on. However, while we know what these practices are, we could know much more about three essential issues: (1) how to do these practices well, (2) how to scale these practices to many students, and (3) how students integrate their learning across multiple high impact experiences.

The Center for Engaged Learning: fosters investigations of these and related questions; hosts multi-institutional research and practice-based initiatives, conferences, and seminars; and shares related resources for faculty and faculty developers on high-impact practices for engaged learning.
