Teaching Training

Dear Teachers,

Welcome to New Mexico Tech and the education profession. Please make sure you finish teaching training before 9am on August 25th. Teaching Assistant contracts may be canceled for TAs who do not have their training, evalution, and certification complete by that time. 

To view the videos for the recorded training, click the associated link. After you have watched the entire training, stop into the graduate office and complete both an evalutation and a certification that you have completed teaching training. 

Copies of materials will be added in a few days. 

Again, welcome to New Mexico Tech and if we can assist you in the Center for Graduate Studies, please stop in and see us.
