Operationalizing Transformative Learning:
Installing Tools and Processes to do "TL" on Campus

Special Session for Administrators
Wednesday, May 18, 2016, 10:15 - 11:30 AM
Oakland Room (Oakland Center)
Dr. Jeff King (Executive Director, Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching and Learning at University of Central Oklahoma)

The University of Central Oklahoma has implemented a university-wide process for ensuring that all undergraduates have a transformative learning experience. Their Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR) tracks each education based on proven measures of transformative experiences. Learn about the development, challenges, and strategies for sustainability UCO has implemented to ensure each student is utterly transformed by their education. Jeff King, UCO’s Director of the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, will guide us through the process, sharing everything down to examples of student work.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe UCO’s model that transformed the culture of the university to enhance student success by promoting a partnership between academic affairs and student affairs focusing on their Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR).
  • Outline STLR and process of implementation.
  • Highlight how challenges were, and are, addressed (infrastructure, tools, processes, technology interaction, training, internal/external buy-in, faculty acceptance, data collection, assessment).
  • Discuss of how other institutions may transform their own practice.

This is a special session for administrative staff, part of the Conference on Teaching and Learning, May 18-19.
