Authentic learning opportunities often take place in the form of what the AAC&U terms “high impact practices“. These practices are based on evidence of significant educational benefits for students who participate in them – including and especially those from demographic groups historically underserved by higher education. They take many different forms, depending on learner characteristics and on institutional priorities and contexts. (Adapted from: Authentic Learning | Teaching & Learning Resource Hub, UNH).
