The Provost’s Award for Diversity in the Curriculum recognizes faculty who have taught a modified course or revised curricula to strengthen diversity and inclusion, resulting in changes of impact. Any full-time or part-time Pitt faculty member who has participated in diversity initiatives at the University may apply for this award. Please encourage faculty who have embraced inclusive teaching practices to submit an application. The guidelines for the award and the application form are available on the Provost's Award for Diversity in the Curriculum web page, and the deadline for applications is October 18, 2019.
Like most other public forums, it’s possible to have a person (who may or may not be invited) disrupt an event that’s meant to bring people together. To help combat this in the remote environment, authors at Zoom Blog created a list of settings to consider that will help keep your sessions free from "crashers" and uninvited guests. Some tips include:
- Not publishing your personal meeting ID for public events.
- Preventing attendees from sharing their screens.
- Password protecting your meeting or allowing only signed-in users to join.
