Special Instructions to Applicants

In order to apply for this TL Graduate Student Project employment, you first must have a Faculty or Staff Supervisor and an approved STLR project.

Position Overview

Student Transformative Learning (TL) Projects are funded through UCO's Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR) to provide students with paid, learning experiences.

 

STLR's goal is to expand students' perspectives of their relationships with self, others, community, and environment to develop employability, communication, and citizenship skills for success after graduation. STLR documents 5 of UCO's Central 6 tenets for students to showcase to employers, graduate schools, scholarship committees, and others. These tenets are: Global & Cultural Competencies; Health & Wellness; Leadership; Research, Creative & Scholarly Activities; and Service Learning & Civic Engagement. These projects give students a place to apply academic knowledge outside the classroom to strengthen their knowledge base, sharpen their skills, and enable the development of real workplace competencies.

 

STLR projects are of variable duration, but all require students to:

  • Meet regularly with the project supervisor and incorporate their feedback.
  • Meet deadlines, take initiative, and possibly interact with project colleagues.
  • Represent UCO in a positive and professional manner.
  • Develop reflective artifact(s) to submit to the project supervisor by the end of the project in a D2L Dropbox for supervisor review.
  • Push the artifact(s) to the student’s STLR ePortfolio in D2L.
  • Articulate a knowledge of UCO’s Central Six, STLR, and the concept of Transformative Learning (TL).
