Faculty Development

 Spring 2015 Faculty Development Week

Faculty Development Week

Spring 2015

January 12-16, 2015


During faculty development each semester we learn from our colleagues who are eager to share knowledge gleaned from their own research and teaching and attendance at conferences or other meetings. The theme for Faculty Development Week January 12-16, 2015, is “Education Is for Life.”


Based on evaluations of previous workshops, faculty would like to see more workshops on effective teaching, more “hands-on” workshops or applications of workshop topics, more workshops on working with difficult students, more on community and El Paso history topics, more wellness workshops on improving health and relieving stress, and more training in dealing with our military students. As faculty, you have great expertise in these and other topics that you can share with other professors—let us hear from you.


As you are scheduling your workshops, please keep in mind the following meetings that many people are required to attend:


·       Faculty Coordinators’ meetings:  Monday morning

·       Tenure Track Faculty Mandatory Workshops:  Tuesday from 10:00 - 3:30 p.m.

·       New Faculty Orientation:  Tuesday afternoon and evening

·       Division meetings: Thursday evening

·       Faculty Association Meeting: Thursday 10-12:00 p.m.


Please send all completed workshop proposal forms by email to Ana Resendez at AnaR@epcc.edu by Monday, November 3. Late proposals may not be considered.  Remember that all workshops must offer a minimum of 50 minutes of development programming and must not be an activity that is normally completed in a committee or other type of meeting.


If you have questions, please call Ana at 831-2201.  Thank you for sharing your expertise with others!


NAME/SAVE your PROPOSAL using the same title of your workshop before emailing it to AnaR@epcc.edu.
