21st Century Pedagogy Institute

CLICK TO REGISTER FOR THE 21CPI


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) (listed below) 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 2017/18 Academic Year 21CPI begins with STLR events in May 2017 and concludes March 30, 2018. See instructions below.

You may participate in any 21CPI event without participating in the 21CPI program. However, if you want to be recognized for your achievement as a teacher-scholar by participating in the 21CPI program, you must REGISTER HERE. You must also register for each event you wish to attend whether you participate in the 21CPI program or not. Event details, dates, and registrations can be located on the CETTL Events and Learning Opportunities page.
