Welcome to the General Education Resources!

General Education is the foundation for all degree and certificate programs at Navajo Technical University. It provides students with knowledge, skills, attributes, and values needed to learn actively, communicate clearly, think critically, creatively, and reflectively, and to interact effectively in diverse environments. NTU's General Education is to educate students within the Diné Philosophy of Education to be independent, critical thinkers, competent in their chosen professions by possessing a solid foundation in math, English, laboratory, social and behavioral sciences, communication, and information technology.

Come back to this site frequently. It will be updated with new information throughout spring 2019 semester.

 

General Education Program Revisions in 2018-19

NTU's GenEd program is undergoing revision in 2018-19. Faculty are aligning the program to new requirements of the New Mexico Higher Education Department.

Here is a profile of the newly revised program. The profile was reviewed and approved by the GenEd Committee on Thu Jan 17 2019.

Here is the template for course certification proposals. Here is a checklist for producing a proposal. Finally, here is a sample proposal for ENG 110, and another sample proposal for MTH 121.

And, here is a link to NTU's Assessment Resources.

 

General Education Program Assessment Plan 2019-20

Starting in 2019-20, the assessment of NTU's General Education Program will focus on the improvement of the program as a whole. Student learning data will be gathered from project assignments in each GenEd course. Data summaries from all sections of the course will be compiled on a semester-by-semester basis by the University's Offices of Assessment and Institutional Research. Departmental faculty will review the data and design course and GenEd program improvements during Assessment Days each semester. An annual summary that includes analyses of program improvement will be prepared by the Assessment Committee and included in the University's Annual Student Learning Report. Curriculum revisions as needed will be designed by the General Education Committee and reviewed and approved by the Faculty Congress.

Co-Curricular Programming and Assessment 2019

Through its co-curricular program, NTU provides value to the Diné community through research, community engagement, and service learning projects, and projects that foster cultural preservation, environmental sustainability, and economic development.

Co-curricular learning and assessment has been added to the GenEd program (see program profile above).

Faculty assess student learning and development using one of two measures: a writing assignment-with-rubric or a short survey.
