The first Teaching Partners meeting of the fall term is Monday, September 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m., in the University Club Gold Room. Lunch will be served. There is limited capacity so please RSVP if you plan to attend. Teaching Partners are the first to know about new resources and services available through the Teaching Center, and meet twice per term to engage in peer-to-peer learning and knowledge sharing. Even if you can’t attend the meeting, you can still join the Teaching Partners community. If you have any questions, contact us at email@example.com.
We are pleased to offer a new workshop from the Center for Mentoring, entitled Mentoring Faculty: A Facilitated Panel, on Thursday, October 25, starting at noon. This session will address topics such as the role mentoring plays in the career trajectory of faculty, how to be a better mentor, and how faculty can find the right mentors at the right time. Professor Anne Robertson from the Swanson School of Engineering will facilitate the session, hosted in 211 David Lawrence Hall.
We hope that the first day of remote teaching has gone smoothly for you and your students. We wanted to share a few important updates with you and will continue to do so throughout the week. Additionally, we wanted to make you aware that two virtual workshops that we facilitated on Friday are now available for viewing (information below). 1) Please read the message from Provost Cudd to all Pitt faculty members on March 20.
