The goal of the University of Pittsburgh’s Teaching and Learning Exchange is to develop a community of scholars who are interested in undertaking systematic investigation of student learning in their classrooms and sharing the outcomes with others. Colleagues in virtually every discipline are striving to make pedagogical decisions based on a deep understanding of best practices. Through an inclusive community of support and collaboration, faculty can invest the intellectual power of their research skills to enhance student learning and performance and share their findings with Pitt and the world.
