Teaching Academy Members
Accumulating Hours Toward Membership
Membership in the Teaching Academy is open to any NMSU educator, including full- and part-time faculty, staff, and graduate students. Memberships last for one academic year. You accumulate hours toward membership each time you participate in any Teaching Academy or Instructional Innovation and Quality (IIQ) event, one hour for each hour of participation. You can also earn hours by serving on a panel, presenting a workshop or sharing your tenure or promotion portfolio for others to use as a model.
The Teaching Academy tracks these hours for you and awards a category of membership based on your level of participation:
- Distinguished Member: 40 hours
- Sustaining Member: 20 hours
- Member: 10 hours
All members receive a membership certificate and an invitation to the annual Teaching Academy Gala, where you celebrate your accomplishment and enjoy the camaraderie of other members. Membership is earned by 350 NMSU educators each year.
Documenting Your Membership
Document your membership in your annual performance review, promotion and tenure portfolio and CV. Your membership demonstrates your dedication to being the best faculty, staff or graduate student you can be. We’ve provided an example of how you can document your participation. A record of your participation in Teaching Academy is available online at Training Central. The following instructions will help you compile the events you have attended, including the hours for each of the events.
