UCO's current initiative is to capture (using the LMS), assess (with rubrics), document (through e-portfolios), and report (with analytics) all aspects of student learning (curricular, co-curricular, extracurricular activities) in a student transformative learning record (STLR). This unique and innovative project required collaboration among academic affairs, student affairs, and IT.Outcomes: Learn about the high-impact practices expressed in UCO's central 6 tenets of transformative learning * Describe the collaborative process used in developing STLR at UCO * Identify areas for collaboration across the academy at your institution.
