Degree-seeking students can choose between a non-credit, workshop-based program or a three-credit course. Four major areas are covered in both programs:
- Teaching Fundamentals
- Classroom Methods
- Ethical Issues
All participants are awarded a certificate of completion and a letter from the associate dean for education, copies of which are stored in your academic file.
Enroll in the Practicum in University Teaching course (FACDEV 2200) for three credits, offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms in both traditional and hybrid formats.
Complete the non-credit program by attending five or more workshops on teaching topics offered by Pitt Public Health and by the University’s Center for Instructional Design and Distance Education
(CIDDE). Complete one workshop from each of the four areas listed above plus an elective workshop of your choice. Participation in workshops is tracked by the Office of Student Affairs.
