Remembering Diana Natalicio

We at the Center for Faculty Leadership and Development are deeply saddened to hear about the recent passing of President Emerita, Dr. Diana Natalicio. She was not only a role model but an inspiration to push barriers and strive for the absolute best. Her connection to the University was one of heart and extreme care for all those who walked on this campus. We will never forget you or all that you have done to help us grow and lead the next generation of UTEP faculty, staff, and students. Thank you Dr. Natalicio.

Sol Conference 2021

(visit our website for more information and to register: http://solconference.utep.edu)

The UTEP Support for Online Learning (Sol) Conference is an event for educators who are passionate about the art and science of teaching and learning. Our exciting, virtual three-day event is focused on research-based, classroom-tested best practices that enhance knowledge and work towards student success. The Sol Conference provides a thought-provoking and stimulating forum for educators of all disciplines and experience levels to share practical ideas and best practices that advance online teaching and learning in higher education.

This year's theme, "Humanizing Online Education: During COVID-19 and Beyond," will explore and discuss how students are more invested in a class when they know that their instructor cares about their learning success. Conveying human presence, empathy, and awareness in a class that utilizes the online environment requires intention and a toolkit of effective practices.

Update for March 10, 2021:

Earlier today, the UTEP website was restored. Not all services are yet available, but information on the outage can be found at http://utepn.ws/3qyu3Pt.

The UTEP Office of International Programs has a Blackboard room open during business hours and is also providing updates through Facebook at www.facebook.com/oipUTEP.

The University will make necessary extensions for seniors in their final semester to obtain their clearances to graduate.

The UTEP COVID-19 Vaccination Program has not been impacted by the outage. 1,123 individuals were vaccinated on Friday and another clinic will be hosted later this week.

The Information Resources team is working through the night with Microsoft to restore email as soon as possible. In addition, they are working on restoring Wi-Fi at student housing as a priority.

The Administrative Forum scheduled for Thursday has been postponed. As soon as our systems and people can support it, we will be hosting a town hall. The priority at the moment is to let the experts focus on restoring our systems.
Non-essential personnel are asked to work from home through Thursday and Information Resources has asked that you not come to campus to turn on any computers in your offices at this time.

We will post updates on the UTEP website and social media accounts. Thanks again for your patience and support of our Information Resources team.

This week’s Grab-N-Go series is on “Instructor Presence.” Online courses lack many of the social cues that naturally occur with in-person courses. However, there are a number of ways to bridge that gap and create a rich, dynamic learning environment.

Dear UTEP Faculty,

This week, we offer a Grab-N-Go on Synchronous Online Instruction.

While asynchronous teaching is ideal for most online courses, synchronous teaching offers some advantages to students' learning experiences. We hope you find the tips, linked resources, and accompanying video useful if and when you offer synchronous online sessions to your students.

Hey, Miners!

If you're planning to be on campus this semester, we encourage you to participate in UTEP's free coronavirus testing program.

Just go to consent.utep.edu to submit a one-time, online consent form. Then, stop by one of the convenient outdoor testing locations on campus between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to be tested. No appointment necessary.

We appreciate your choice to be proactive about your health and the health of your fellow Miners. Your decision to be tested will help pave the way for a stronger, healthier, and safer UTEP campus.

Miners take care of Miners!

Hello UTEP faculty!

As we prepare for a fall semester during which many of UTEP’s courses will be taught online or with a significant online component, the Support for Online Learning (Sol) team offers the Grab-N-Go (https://www.utep.edu/faculty-development/sol/grabngo.html) series. This resource provides quick tips, links to additional resources, and faculty videos on a variety of topics related to effective online teaching. While we are currently focused on online instruction, these topics will apply to any mode of teaching.

The first two topics of the Grab-N-Go series are Universal Design and Online Course Syllabus.

We hope you will find them helpful, and if you have ideas for topics you’d like to see offered, please let us know.

We wish you a great semester!

We would love to read your stories 😊😊😊.

Take care and have a good weekend!

We are going through very different times and it is heartening to know that as a UTEP community many have found novel, effective, and even lighthearted ways to stay connected with one another and our students.
With this in mind, the CFLD invites you to share your COVID-19 responses here, whether it is with how to keep in touch, wellness checks, adjustments to teaching and learning, useful resources, etc.
You might share through videos, pictures with captions, or sharing through a paragraph or two. This is an effort to share all the good going on in difficult and challenging times. Your posts will also be featured in our website https://www.utep.edu/faculty-development/.

We wish you all continued good health and spirits!
