​Co-authored by Brice Struthers (American Council on Education); Penny MacCormack
(Association of College and University Educators); and 
Steven C. Taylor (American Council on Education and Wilmington University (DE))

As a continuation of the work with Strada Education Network, the American Council on Education is engaged in research to highlight the impact of certain high impact practices and the connections of instructional quality and improved student outcomes to increased institutional effectiveness. This research presents efforts by three distinct public colleges and universities to support teaching and learning, and exploring their impacts: California State University, Fullerton; Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis; and Housatonic Community College (CT). This paper presents the different pedagogical practices and explores the outcomes, challenges, and future strategies that each institution faces through implementation.  The authors further examine the foundational aspect that good teaching plays in implementing evidence-based practices that positively affect student learning and outcomes.
