Plan to take advantage of some new resources offered. Faculty at Northwest now have easy access to two professional development resources: The Teaching Professor and The 20 Minute Mentor video archives. Access to both of these resources is through the same easy login. Earlier during the fall trimester, an e-mail was sent to all faculty providing the directions for how to set up an account.
The Teaching Professor provides practical articles written by faculty. These articles provide practical techniques and strategies for university faculty. The newsletter is published 10 times each year.
The 20 Minute Mentor videos are short, 20 minute videos presented by faculty. They provide a quick way to gain professional development ideas to use at the university level. These videos provide teaching and learning techniques and strategies. The short presentations provide a great way to learn new ideas and easily fit a busy schedule.
