The Teaching Online @ Pitt Program consists of a series of instructional modules focused on best practices for teaching online. Each module within the series is an independent, self-paced learning experience that you can complete at any time or place. You may choose the topics that interest you and engage with that material.
The program offers badges and certificates for participating faculty. The content is designed specifically for faculty teaching online courses at Pitt, but all Pitt faculty are encouraged to participate. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the TOP course or faculty and staff can self-enroll in the course to begin.
