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 Michael Jackson. The schedule for the 2021 Faculty Development Week can be found here.
