Faculty searching for reliable research on new teaching methods to help students engage with learning run into innumerable obstacles. Chief among these are the plentiful claims of “best practices,” most of which have little or no supporting evidence. Indeed, a sizeable portion of such research done at the university level examines a single institution’s program(s), while the analysis of the evidence deployed rarely yields results applicable to one’s own institution. George D. Kuh seeks to overcome the gaps in the scholarship. In recent years, the widespread use of the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) has produced a tremendous amount of data to aid in the search for what Kuh calls “high impact practices.” In his brief essay of the same name, Kuh deploys NSSE data to support the claim that ten practices are particularly effective. These practices, he insists, should be more widely used and more thoroughly researched.
