Extending the Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education (1987)
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 http://www.tltgroup.org/programs/8thprinciple

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.
