Come outside and enjoy the spring weather with us for this “Walkshop” on April 2 from 10-11:30 a.m. With a special focus on the dynamics of an urban campus rich with resources and influences from around the world, this walking workshop is designed to help instructors consider opportunities to incorporate the physical space of our campus into their learning activities. Attendees will explore what Oakland has to offer and become familiarized with key pedagogical steps to foster successful experiential learning outcomes. Please register online to attend.
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.
