Learn about the creative spark that led to Dr. Bromberg utilizing this immersive technology, as well as how it positively impacted the student learning experience, in our latest feature story.
To learn how faculty at Pitt are using Open Education Resources (OER), plan to attend the Faculty Perspectives - Open Education Resources Panel Discussion on March 4, 4-5:30 p.m. in the University Club Gold Room. Four Pitt faculty will describe their experiences with adapting, adopting, and/or creating OER for their courses.
Additionally, faculty that want to incorporate more OER into their courses can apply for OER funding through the Office of the Provost by March 20.
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.
