Provost’s Fall Workshop Series on Student Success: Session Three

Creating a culture of caring in the classroom
 
The University Center for Teaching and Learning in collaboration with the Office of the Provost presents a series of virtual workshops on Student Success for the fall 2021 term. We know Pitt faculty are committed to the welfare and success of your students. Sometimes, putting these ideas into practice can be challenging and complex. Given the demographics of our students are changing at Pitt, we aim to provide practical tools to increase the efficiency of your daily work in your interactions with students. Join us in conversations to support all students as we return to campus this fall.
 
In our most recent Pitt Gallup Study, one of the key findings included that students favored professors exhibit behaviors in their teaching and approach with students that demonstrate an interest in students and the subject matter – and is reflected in the energy they bring to the classroom. Specifically, students indicated the importance of creating a culture of caring in the classroom by:
  • taking time to notice students
  • extending to accommodate students
  • affirming and encouraging students

This session will dig deeper into these behaviors and discuss practical ways to incorporate them into teaching and learning.

Presenters:

Julia Spears, Associate Vice Provost for Academic Innovation, Office of the Provost

Lizette Muñoz Rojas, Teaching Consultant, University Center for Teaching and Learning

Josie Rush, Teaching Consultant, University Center for Teaching and Learning
