21st Century Pedagogy Institute

The 21st Century Pedagogy Institute (21CPI) presents UCO faculty numerous opportunities to improve their teaching. The offerings align with UCO's Academic Vision of being a learning-centered organization with a focus on teaching first. CETTL brings these ideas to fruition through the 21CPI. The 21CPI consists of seven Faculty Learning Outcomes (FLOs) emerging from contemporary educational research on teaching and learning. Several events have been developed to achieve these FLOs. By achieving these FLOs, faculty have the opportunity to earn recognition at various levels as a Teacher-Scholar. Recognition is celebrated each April by President Betz and Provost Barthell at the Champagne & Chocolate Gala. The 2018/19 Academic Year 21CPI begins with STLR trainings in May 2018 and concludes March 30, 2019.

Various 21CPI event details, dates, and registrations can be located on the CETTL Events and Learning Opportunities page.


21CPI graduates will be recognized for their achievement by President Betz and Provost Barthell at the annual Champagne & Chocolate Gala in April.
