STLR Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff carry out UCO’s mission of providing transformative learning experiences to students – thereby helping them become well-rounded, employable, citizens and leaders. STLR is the way we do Transformative Learning at UCO, providing training to faculty and staff, a way to measure student growth, and a record of students’ experiences across the Central Six Tenets.

Why should you get involved with STLR?

  • Help UCO meet its mission
  • Integrate into the UCO culture
  • Enhance your teaching and interactions with students
  • Broaden their experiences to make them more career-ready
  • Engage students to improve their chances of academic success
  • Deepen student learning through prompting them to critically reflect

Faculty Testimonial

Support, resources and materials to help enhance student learning.

UCO CEPS faculty member Dr. Susan Scott describes her STLR designed class assignment, how it helped students, how it helped her and why she'd recommend getting involved with STLR to other faculty.
  • Attend STLR Training (2, 3-hour modules for initial training; ongoing Refresher and other training opportunities), which are part of UCO’s 21st Century Pedagogy Institute.
  • Build new, or enhance existing, assignments, events, student groups, and out-of-class projects, then request to STLR-tag them.
  • Advertise STLR to your students using resources from the D2L STLR Resources shell, including our STLR Style Guide.
  • Give students STLR credit by collecting UCO ID swipes at events/locations or by collecting student reflections and assessing them using the STLR rubric.
