Faculty Seminars are educational experiences designed exclusively for faculty to deepen and enrich their teaching practice by focusing on an aspect of their teaching. The learning communities operate as a cohort and give faculty access to a community of practice that nurtures their teaching while focusing on research-guided principles.

The Office of the Provost and the Teaching Center are now accepting proposals from Pitt faculty for funding to assist in the redesign of large courses through the Course Incubator project. Funding will be provided to support initial planning and proposal development, as well as development and implementation activities. Pre-proposals are due on Nov. 4, 2019. The goal of the Course Incubator project is to radically redesign large enrollment classes to increase the success of our students. Three grants were awarded in 2018 for strategic changes to large enrollment courses for Chemistry, Biology, and Economics. For more information, visit the Course Incubator page.
Our next Teaching Partners meeting is Friday, March 23, from noon - 1:30 p.m., at the University Club (Ballroom A). Lunch will be provided. This community now contains faculty from as many as 40 different schools and disciplines. You can join the conversation and sign up for the March meeting on our Teaching Partners page.
