At New Mexico Tech we support ongoing professional development of faculty. This includes hosting guest speakers and running workshops on a variety of topics. We also have regularly scheduled focused training events, such as those described below.
Faculty Development Week
Every year the Office of Academic Affairs organizes workshops for the week prior to the beginning of the fall semester on a variety of topics of interest to faculty. If you have suggestions for future workshops or guest speakers contact Peter Mozley.
Orientation for New Faculty
Prior to the beginning of the fall semester the Office of Academic Affairs runs a day-long training session for new faculty members. For more information contact Peter Mozley.
Senate Faculty Development Committee
The Faculty Senate has a very active Faculty Development Committee, which organizes mentorship for new faculty and training events every semester. In recent years the committee has hosted a very successful spring-semester Faculty Research Workshop in collaboration with the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. Events/activities scheduled so far for the 2018-2019 academic year include:
- November 9, 8:00 - 10:30 am, Faculty mentor/mentee breakfast, CITL. This is a great opportunity for informal conversations between faculty mentors and mentees. Breakfast burritos, coffee, etc.
- November 14, 12-1 pm, CITL, Tenure Workshop. Lunch provided! A faculty panel consisting of Profs. Sally Pias, Mike Hargather, Aly El Osery and Fred Phillips will share their experiences with the tenure process here at NMT. This is particularly encouraged for new tenure-track faculty seeking to learn about the NMT tenure process.
- We are conducting a Faculty Development Committee Survey. We would be pleased to accept your input on the benefits to you of the activities we pursue as one of the faculty senate committees. We have the survey open until November 20, 2018.
