STLR-trained faculty and staff can submit activities in the categories shown below to count for STLR credit. We ask for submissions at least 2 weeks in advance. To be approved, the activity must relate to one or more of the STLR tenets of Transformative Learning (see graphic below). Once approved, that faculty or staff facilitates the activity (e.g., assigns the activity, prompts for reflection, gathers attendance data) and awards STLR credit (through attendance upload and/or assessment of reflective evidence). Students can then view those STLR credits on their STLR Snapshot interactive dashboard.

STLR Activity Types

  • Class assignments
    • A course assignment or series of assignments taught by a STLR-trained faculty/staff member for a grade to meet class learning objectives, and also for the chance at some level of STLR credit; see examples here.
  • Events (in person or virtual)* or online resources
    • Usually a one-time event hosted by a department or student group and overseen by a STLR-trained faculty/staff member; attendees are given Exposure-level STLR credit in one or more STLR tenets for choosing to attend/participate; could be a series of events; and, if faculty/staff host chooses, attendees could submit a reflective artifact for potentially higher-level STLR credit; see examples here.
  • Student groups
    • A group of students (official UCO student organization or other group overseen by a STLR-trained faculty/staff member) who meet together for several activities around some common interest, and submit a reflection over growth across all the activities to be assessed by the faculty/staff member for some level of STLR credit; see examples here.
  • Non-class projects
    • An individual or group of students working on a project, not for class credit, under the mentorship of a STLR-trained faculty/staff  supervisor; may be with or without pay; students submit reflective artifacts to be assessed for some level of STLR credit; see examples here.
  • Locations offering events or services
    • An event or service offered by one of these STLR-tagged locations, that give Exposure-level STLR credit to participating students who swipe their UCO ID card on a wired, stationary swipe device (model MF4100) or through virtual participation/appointments/visits online. If the location chooses to offer the opportunity to submit a reflective artifact, students have the potential for higher-level STLR credit.
  • Student Individual Reflection Appointments (SIRAs)
    • A select group of trained, UCO faculty and staff, are offering one-on-one, 50-minute appointments to talk with students about their previous, non-STLR-tagged or compilation of experiences, to assess STLR credit.

*STLR-Tagged Event Options

In Person STLR Events:

  • On the STLR-tagging form, indicate you’d like to reserve a swiper that would be checked out through UCO Campus Card Services (if your event will have access to UCO_Secure wifi);
  • OR, areas or groups with a UCORE portal page can use its RSVP, event check-in, or QR code scanning/check-in options from within your portal. After the event, download the report of attendees from UCORE, format as an Excel file with first name, last name, and UCO email, then submit this to the STLR office using this form (link also emailed to you on approval of your STLR event). Learn about the UCORE system or contact the Student Organizations Office for more info on how to request a portal page or use its features;
  • OR, keep track of attendees through an electronic spreadsheet during or after the event. Spreadsheet must include first name, last name, and UCO email. It must be their UCO email, not a personal email or their UCO ID number. Only having the ID number and not the UCO email, will mean the info cannot be uploaded to D2L. D2L does not use the ID number. After the event, submit the spreadsheet using this form, which will also be emailed to you on approval of your STLR event. Students will be enrolled in your D2L “event shell” and given STLR Exposure-level credit in about an hour.

Virtual STLR Events:

  • Areas or groups with a UCORE portal page can use its RSVP, event check-in, or QR code scanning/check-in option from within their portals. After the event, download the report of attendees from UCORE, format with as an Excel file with first name, last name, and UCO email and submit it using this form, which will also be emailed to you on approval of your STLR event. Students should see their credit on the STLR Snapshot interactive dashboard by the next day. Learn about the UCORE System or contact the Student Organizations Office for more info on how to request a portal page or use its features;
  • OR, Use your virtual platform software to have students provide their first name, last name, and UCO email. This could be through a registration option or keeping track of attendees manually. Copy the info into a spreadsheet. Only having the ID number and not the UCO email, will mean the info cannot be uploaded to D2L. D2L does not use the ID number. After the event, submit the spreadsheet using this form, which will also be emailed to you on approval of your STLR event. Students should see their credit on the STLR Snapshot interactive dashboard by the next day;
  • OR, the STLR-trained faculty/staff event host can use the D2L event course shell to enroll and manually assign the student STLR Exposure-level credit. Contact the STLR office for guidance.
