Earlier this term, Pitt celebrated the 50th anniversary of an event that would forever change the African-American student experience at the University of Pittsburgh. In our latest episode of TC60, we showcase “Say It Loud: The Black Action Society, The Computer Center Takeover, and Transformation at the University of Pittsburgh” event. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team chronicled the event, which is the feature of this month's installment of TC60.
The Provost’s Award for Diversity in the Curriculum formally recognizes the efforts of faculty to integrate diversity and inclusion into their courses and curriculum. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the University Center for Teaching and Learning, the award recognizes excellence in areas such as updated curriculum, expanded cultural awareness, development of teaching methods that are especially inclusive and interactive, consciously created learning environments that are welcoming and inclusive, and other changes that positively impact aspects of diversity and inclusion in the classroom.
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.
