Welcome to Faculty Focus Day 2020! 

Faculty Focus Day is an opportunity for CNM faculty and instructional 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 day is designed to provide training on topics such as technology, faculty resources, student resources, workplace safety, college initiatives, discipline-specific training, and teaching strategies.  Many faculty and staff across CNM have been working hard to prepare sessions that are practical and relevant to CNM faculty. Faculty Focus Day is a remote event this year, and sessions will occur in Zoom. We look forward to a fantastic day of learning and sharing a new adventure with our first online faculty development event!
