As announced by Dr. Minner, New Mexico Highlands University will be transitioning to online and distance teaching: ‘Face-to-face courses will be transitioned to alternative delivery March 30. Further details will be sent to faculty and students this week.’
The Center for Teaching Excellence will be continuing to offer trainings and seminars for faculty and students as they transition to distance and alternative learning. Check NMHU global emails for upcoming events.
Please contact Veronica Black at firstname.lastname@example.org to brainstorm other method of distance teaching for those classes that aren’t as easy to get online.
