Pathways for Faculty are educational experiences designed exclusively for faculty. The intent of Pathways for Faculty is to deepen and enrich the teaching practice by focusing on a specific aspect of teaching. Faculty are experts in their field; however, many haven’t had the opportunity to dive deep into teaching. Interested faculty may apply online for the Pathway of their choice. More information on each Pathway is available on the Pathways For Faculty web page.
The University of Pittsburgh will transition to the Canvas Learning Management System in 2020. Canvas will allow instructors to deliver content in a more organized way, communicate with students through multiple channels, and grade assignments for students with better tools, along with a host of other features. Recently, Canvas representatives met with our LMS Support and Consulting team and our CSSD colleagues to begin learning how to best implement this LMS for the University community. Watch Headlines: Canvas @ Pitt video or visit our Canvas @ Pitt web page to learn more information about the resources available to you in the new learning management system.
The University of Pittsburgh renewed its participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (SARA) this month, which allows Pitt to enroll students from all 50 states (and more) into its online programs. While the full impact of joining SARA can not be calculated until the end of this academic year, Pitt Online has already set a new high mark with out-of-state enrollments in just the fall and spring terms. Learn more about Pitt Online's out-of-state growth in our latest blog.
