We are excited to launch a brand new set of web pages dedicated to assessment of teaching. This content is designed to support instructors in an exploration of various methods of assessment to improve their teaching. The content also offers support to academic units to establish and sustain a culture of teaching excellence. We invite you to browse this new information, and learn about the resources and different levels of support offered at the Teaching Center.
The Provost's Diversity Institute begins with two events at the Community Engagement Center in Homewood on April 29. Inside-Out: Experiences from the Pitt Prison Education Project (10 a.m.) kicks things off, and facilitates dialogue and education across social differences by co-enrolling students from university and incarcerated settings. Teaching Side by Side (1 p.m.) follows in the afternoon, offering a community-based learning format that brings together college students and community residents or organizations in classes taught by university faculty. Information on these sessions, registration, and more can be found on the Provost's Diversity Institute for Faculty Development web page. Eligible faculty will receive a stipend for attending these sessions.
The Center for Diversity in the Curriculum has several diversity workshops you can take advantage of each month during spring term. Some even offer remote participation for attendees.
