UCO faculty and staff get involved with STLR by:
  1. Attending STLR Training: 2, 3-hour modules for initial training; then opportunities for refresher and other training, which are part of UCO’s 21st Century Pedagogy Institute. Search for "STLR" in the UCO Learning Center.
  2. STLR-Tagging Activities: Build new, or enhance existing, assignments, events, student groups, and out-of-class projects; match to one or more STLR tenets, then request to STLR-tag them.
  3. Telling about STLR: Explain STLR to students using resources from the D2L STLR Resources shell and our YouTube channel, following the STLR Style Guide; and do research on STLR activities and present about it to add to their CVs!
  4. Giving students STLR credit: After STLR-tagging activities, collect UCO ID swipes at events/locations, upload attendee lists, or collect student reflections and assess them using the STLR rubric.
