Faculty Focus Day 2022 — CNM

Faculty Information Day and Equity Summit

9th edition of the CNM Faculty study day is scheduled for August 25, 2022. The Faculty Retreat is an opportunity for CNM faculty and teaching staff to benefit from a wide range of professional development and training opportunities that may not be available during the busy weeks of the term.

The morning of the Faculty Focus Day will be devoted to Equity Summit with speakers and sessions focusing on equity, ethnicity and meeting the diverse needs of students. This summit is the result of a collaboration between the CTL and Felecia Caton-Garcia, faculty member and CNM diversity, equity and inclusion strategist. The Summit is the result of research, practice, and reflection over the past few years by NJC faculty, staff, and the Equity Council.

We will start the day with a plenary session with opening remarks and a plenary address. The morning breakout session, at 10 a.m., will offer a variety of topics to engage CNM faculty in exploring issues of equity in higher education and the role of community colleges in perpetuating or dismantling systemic inequalities. . This summit is our portal to deeper conversations and long-term commitment to practices, policies, and strategies that support equity for students and employees at CNM.

Afternoon sessions will include topics such as technology, faculty resources, student resources, college initiatives, discipline-specific training, and teaching strategies. Many CNM departments welcome FFD as a chance to communicate with faculty about relevant information and programs.

In-person format
This year, the Faculty Retreat format will be in-person on main campus, beginning the day at Smith Brasher. We will have a contingency plan ready to move to a remote event if pandemic conditions require.

Login procedure

Bring your CNM ID
When you enter the room for a session, have the session host scan your CNM ID or type your CNM ID on the card reader in the door and listen for the “beep”. This will document your attendance at the session.

Why do we use an electronic login procedure?
The sessions you attend are documented on your Talent Management transcript, an ongoing record of your professional development at CNM.

The NJC is also required to report faculty development activities for accreditation purposes. Talent Management (TMS) is the best way to capture data for reporting, and logging in to the ID card reader is the most efficient method to import data into TMS, eliminating the need to manually enter more of 2000 distinct entries for more than 70 study days on the faculty. sessions. Thank you for working with us to adopt this simplified procedure.

Sessions that recommend pre-registration

Most sessions do not require pre-registration, but some sessions require pre-registration. Please see the session descriptions in the catalog to see if there is an option to pre-register.
