The Honors International Faculty Institute (HIFI) convened in May for a three-day intensive workshop sponsored by the John V. Roach Honors College, the National Collegiate Honors Council, and the European Honors Council. Twenty-one Honors faculty members from the United States and the Netherlands gathered at TCU to share knowledge about Honors education and to brainstorm ways to create and execute Honors courses with research-based Honors pedagogy. Participants took part in online and on-site learning opportunities that served, in part, to strengthen collaboration and communication among Honors scholars, as well as to support Honors pedagogy. Post meeting, HIFI members continue to work on an Honors pedagogy handbook, which will contribute to the advancement of Honors programs in the future.
