21st Century Pedagogy Institute


The 21st Century Pedagogy Institute (21CPI) presents UCO faculty numerous opportunities (listed on the left in the 21CPI Events box) to enhance their teaching for promotion and tenure. The offerings align with UCO's Academic Vision of being a learning-centered organization with a focus on teaching first. The 21CPI consists of five Faculty Learning Outcomes (FLOs) developed by the cross-disciplinary 21CPI Advisory Board and informed by current research.
