Comments from Chancellor Gallagher at a recent Board of Trustees meeting.

The Teaching Center’s Open Lab serves the growing interest in the Pitt community for academic innovation and exploration of advanced technology with full-spectrum pedagogical support.

The Open Lab is an inclusive environment that welcomes faculty, staff, and students to experiment with 3D printers, 360 degree video cameras, virtual reality, and other exciting forms from the vanguard of instructional technology. We are eager to take on new projects, forge connections between potential collaborators, and assist in making your vision a reality. Drawing on the Teaching Center’s resources, we can provide multifaceted support ranging from instructional development and evidence of impact to hands-on training and experimentation in our Open Lab facility, currently operating in Alumni Hall, Suite B10.

We invite everyone in the Pitt community with a spirit of adventure to join us as we push ahead into the future. Walk-ins are welcome, or contact us at to arrange a tour or consultation. We are ready to help take your ideas to the next level of innovation!

The Open Lab has a great track record of changing the very nature of your course to provide the most engaging environment for teaching and learning. Recently we have assisted the following faculty with their courses.
