Pitt offers resources to help graduate students develop widely applicable and transferable teaching and instructional skills.
As a member of the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) network since 2012, Pitt supports a University-wide learning community consisting of a diverse and vibrant group of graduate students, postdocs, and faculty members who together discuss their own teaching-as-research and critically examine the work of others in the community and the larger field. Since 2015, Pitt students from nine schools have completed approximately 200 non-degree certificates spanning three levels of accomplishment in teaching-as-research.
The University Center for Teaching and Learning (The Teaching Center), with support from the Office of the Provost, strives to inspire excellence and innovation in teaching, learning, and scholarly activities at the University of Pittsburgh. Utilize the Teaching Center for educational resources, assistance with classroom technology and tools, workshops and training, teaching support, and other learning initiatives.
The dB-SERC works with teachers in Pitt natural sciences departments to create a community to improve the teaching and learning through evidence-based practices.
