About the Teaching Partners Faculty Community ...
The Teaching Partners is faculty community at the University Center for Teaching and Learning. This program engages faculty from across the University who use the Teaching Center’s resources to support and enhance their teaching practice.
Teaching Partners are the first to know about new programs, services, and resources available through the Teaching Center. You will get practical ideas that you can use in teaching, and information about the latest developments in pedagogy research and educational technologies. You also have opportunities to share experiences with peers and connect with other faculty with similar interests.
Importantly, as a Teaching Partner, we seek your ideas and advice about how the Teaching Center can best support you. We also ask that you share what you learn with your colleagues in your school, department or campus, too, in order to help us get the word out about services available to faculty. Teaching Partners can help the Teaching Center to improve the way we provide services to you and help to shape the future of teaching at Pitt.
The Teaching Partners convene twice per semester and are kept informed about important teaching and technology topics by email and social media during intervening months. All faculty are invited to join the Teaching Partners community. Complete the form below to join the conversation.

Seven faculty from six different schools and departments shared their successes, lessons learned, and how they’ve modified their courses to create new ways of teaching and learning.
