The Office of the Provost, in conjunction with the University Center for Teaching and Learning, awarded six faculty with the Provost's Award for Diversity in the Curriculum last week. The award recognizes the efforts of faculty to integrate diversity and inclusion into their courses and curriculum. You can read more about each award winner and their accomplishments in articles published in University Times and @Pitt.
We’d like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the 2019 Pittsburgh Regional Faculty Symposium on March 11. The event attracted over 270 professionals from around the region – and internationally — and gathered together talents and expertise from across the entire spectrum of higher education. Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh for offering the keynote address, as well as 13 different Pitt faculty members who where involved in the planning or hosting of a conference session.
The University of Pittsburgh will transition to the Canvas Learning Management System during the 2019-2020 academic year. To prepare for this transition, our center has a number of resources and workshops available for instructors. Visit our Canvas @ Pitt web pages to learn more about this transition, how it will impact you in the coming months, and how we can help. Starting Dec. 16, instructors can participate in a number of workshops aimed at preparing the campus community for Canvas.
