Professional Development Events
Certificación Básica y Avanzada- at your Institution!
HETS is constantly looking for newer and fresher ideas in its field of expertise to bring its members the best of all services, and maximize the knowledge and experiences of member themselves, as they get together to collaborate with each other and contribute to one another. This is why one of the HETS Consortium priorities involves the development and offering the series of basic and advanced workshops to either achieve Certificación Básica or Certificación Avanzadaat your campus for groups of 15 or more participants.
Professional workshops are created with HETS members needs and interests in mind. Subject areas for these are selected based upon the needs identified through surveys, discussions, and evaluations, as well as based on the opportunities and challenges posed by current educational trends. Through these workshops and other series of events during the year, HETS aims at creating awareness and developing skills on the use of technology to enhance education. Workshops are also designed to promote among participants the advantages of technology to improve education and encourage the adoption and implementation of technology to enhance student support. Overall, PDEs serve as our medium to reach greater audiences on the impact of technology on Higher Education and the success of the Hispanic learner. Current available workshops are:
