College students grow and transform through both academic and non-academic experiences while at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO). Students' academic transcripts display their aptitude in their Discipline Knowledge, but how can they track and display their growth in other important areas?
UCO's Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR) is like a second transcript that records students' growth and Transformative Learning across the other five of UCO's Central Six Tenets.
They might learn how to work well in teams with people whose opinions differ from their own; develop leadership skills as president of a student organization; improve their ability to interact positively and appropriately with co-workers, customers, and others from different countries and cultures in their classes; find out how to contribute as productive citizens to their local communities, the nation, and the world through volunteering; or might practice solving unscripted problems and devise creative solutions while doing independent research. Students reflect on their experience then receive feedback from a trained faculty or staff. Students store these experiential artifacts in different versions of ePortfolios that they can share with potential employers, graduate schools, or others to highlight their most employable skills.
