Adding #8: Time to Extend the Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education?
Date: March 6, 2015
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters:  Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group, Steve Ehrmann, Assoc. Dir. (Research &Evaluation), Ctr for Academic Innovation at University System of Maryland, Arthur W. Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson

Steve Gilbert explores the idea of extending the Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education with the authors of the original work on this subject, Arthur W Chickering and Zelda F. Gamson. He will also be joined by Steve Ehrmann, who extended these concepts into the world of technology through his 1996 work "Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever."

Seven Principles - Brief History
SUMMARY:  Good practice in undergraduate education:

We do not propose to extend those Principles formally.  However, we encourage thought and discussion about what might usefully be added.   We hope to accumulate and organize a useful collection a variety of these "8th Principles."

The TLT Group offered some events related to these themes several years ago.  You can see some rough reclamations of the previous materials online at

Examples of “Web-Adapted, Low Threshold Assessments for Improved Student Learning”

SUMMARY:  Good practice in undergraduate education:

  1. Encourages contacts between students and faculty.

  2. Develops reciprocity and cooperation among students.

  3. Uses active learning techniques.

  4. Gives prompt feedback.[See CATs]

  5. Emphasizes time on task.

  6. Communicates high expectations.

  7. Respects diverse talents and ways of learning.

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
