Our Teaching Support unit’s primary goal is to help make you an even more successful teacher. Most Pitt faculty are already doing an outstanding job of teaching their students, but even great teachers can struggle from time to time to achieve their best results. Teaching difficult concepts that many students regularly wrestle to understand; helping support individual students’ learning; and incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into our curriculum and teaching are challenges that many instructors experience.
Collaborating with teaching consultants in the Teaching Center might help you to conceptualize, design, and implement a new approach. Whether your goal is to update your teaching practice to better engage your students, to get feedback from a teaching observation, or to simply raise your teaching survey scores, we can help.
When you work with us, you’re never required to implement any of our suggestions and your consultations are confidential. We offer recommendations tailored to your needs and interests and informed by research and our own decades of teaching experience.
