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 University Center for Teaching and Learning would like to congratulate the recipients of the 2019 Provost’s Award for Diversity in the Curriculum.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the 2019 Pittsburgh Regional Faculty Symposium on March 11. The event attracted over 270 professionals from around the region – and internationally — and gathered together talents and expertise from across the entire spectrum of higher education. Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh for offering the keynote address, as well as 13 different Pitt faculty members who where involved in the planning or hosting of a conference session.
