Thank you for working with the University Center for Teaching and Learning. We want to keep you informed with bi-weekly Teaching Center updates. We’ve launched a new website! You’ll still be able to find us at the same web address: teaching.pitt.edu. However, we’ve implemented a new look, feel, and brand. Please let us know what you think!

The Teaching Center, along with Computing Services and Systems Development (CSSD), would appreciate your input on the future of Pitt’s Learning Management System (CourseWeb). Should the University stay with Blackboard as the platform for CourseWeb, or should we consider adopting a different product? Join us for a fact-finding session, or complete the Future of Pitt’s Learning Management System survey.
The 2017 Provost’s Diversity Institute for Faculty Development was created to offer University of Pittsburgh faculty the opportunity to increase awareness about diversity and develop the skills needed to teach in a diverse, multicultural environment.
The University of Pittsburgh is now a participating institution in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA), an interstate agreement that makes it easier for students to take online courses and complete field placements in another state. As a result, Pitt is now eligible to enroll students into its online programs from all 50 states and the District of Columbia with no restrictions, and students are allowed to complete experiential learning assignments across state lines.
The University of Pittsburgh has partnered with SensusAccess to offer a file converter tool that makes inaccessible documents (such as Word or PDF files) into more accessible media (such as searchable PDFs, audio MP3 files, Braille, or e-text). SensusAccess is available to all Pitt faculty, staff, students, and alumni that have an active University email address.
