Pre-Conference STLR Institute

April 8, 2020 | UCO Campus

Drawing upon evidence-based research, High-Impact Practices (HIPs), Transformative Learning, and authentic assessment tools, the University of Central Oklahoma’s (UCO’s) Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR,* is a non-proprietary model with a proven track record for increasing retention, student academic achievement, and workforce readiness. Other institutions that have adopted and adapted STLR to their missions, cultures, and specific needs are now finding this to be true for them, too, whether they call the process “STLR” on their campuses or name the process something more suited to their branding. This pre-conference institute will gather interested institutional teams to learn about the STLR initiative.

The Institute is a workshop style format, with hands-on, interactive components, case scenarios, and group work time. Institutional team time will be built into the Institute program to allow participants to conceptualize a plan of implementation or framework at their home institutions.

The Institute program is ideal for institutions at various stages of work, and it addresses ambitious goals for improving retention, quality of student learning, and better assessment tracking and practices for both internal and external campus evaluation. We hope you’ll join us!

Hosted by the University of Central Oklahoma
