Our Teaching Support unit’s primary goal is to help make you a successful teacher. Most Pitt faculty are already doing an outstanding job of teaching their students – and if that’s you, congratulations! Sometimes even the best teachers may struggle with one or two in their practice, or perhaps there’s a concept in your course that many students regularly struggle to understand. Collaborating with Instructional Designers and Instructional Technologists in the Teaching Center may help you conceptualize, design, and implement a new approach. Whether your goal is to update your teaching practice to better engage your students, to improve the learning outcomes of your students, or to simply raise your teaching survey scores, we have several ways we can help. When you work with us, you are never required to implement any of our suggestions. In addition, your consultations are confidential. We offer consultative advice based on research and our own decades of teaching experience but we will never tell you how to run your class or your course.
