Another outstanding conference.
My only regret is that we do not have the budget to bring our entire faculty.
Those who attended came back fully energized and ready to tackle completion
—Jim Selbe, President, Hopkinsville
Community College (KY)
NISOD rocks! Attending is
like visiting your favorite uncle and learning from his tales filled with
wisdom, meeting all the kids in the neighborhood, and filling up on the goodies
he's got stashed just for you!
—Christine Buta, Adjunct Associate Professor, Johnson County Community College (KS)
A beautifully organized
conference that provides a once-a-year enclave for college
educators/administrators looking to share ideas and keep current with trends in
learning and teaching.
—Philippe Baugh, Assistant Professor, Music, Tarrant County College (TX)
The NISOD Conference was an
opportunity to appreciate the value of the work we all do each day. I am
excited, and encouraged by what I learned and ready to share it with students
in a way that challenges both them and me. This was the best conference I have
—Marty Rodweller, Academic Counselor/Adjunct Professor, North Shore Community College (MA)
Come to NISOD as an
individual, attend as a student, and when it's over you will leave as a member
of the NISOD community.
—Cameron Cox, Instructor, Sait Polytechnic (CANADA)
NISOD is the best conference
around. In Austin, you let your hair down and dig into some great learning
experiences. I've been to NISOD three years in a row, and I'm coming back next
—Lisa Macon, Professor
of Information Technology, Valencia
NISOD provides a rich
learning experience for all who attend. The general sessions are always
informative, inspiring, affirming, and even entertaining! With so many breakout
sessions to chose from, there is something new to learn for everyone.
—Katherine Persson, President, LoneStar College-Kingwood (TX)
NISOD is truly one of the
best professional developmental conferences. It practices what it teaches by
addressing the body, mind, and spirit. Well done!!!
—Deborah Daiek, Associate Dean, Learning Support Services, Schoolcraft College (MI)
There is no doubt that the
NISOD conference is an excellent, renewing, revitalizing event. Regardless of
anything else, one can't help but feel recommitted to the job after attending.
—Julia Brandwin-Glait, Curriculum Consultant/Faculty, Nova Scotia Community College (CANADA)
This is by far the most
inspiring and rewarding conference for community college faculty. Everyone involved
in the conference confirms the importance and relevance of being a part of the
community college system. The sessions provide information, updates, and
motivation for each of us to do our part in assisting students to become all
they can be.
—Marilyn McGahan, Vice President, Mid-Plains Community College (NE)
I learned so many new ideas
at the NISOD Conference about how to thrive in the new economy that it easily
paid for my registration!
—Bo Sellers, Director of Workforce Solutions, Pierpont Community and Technical College (WV)
It was an amazing and
emotional feeling to be surrounded by so many community college educators,
staff, and administrators. The passion in the conversations regarding students
and how to be better at what we do was overwhleming. It was not about money,
prestige, or titles—but instead it was about becoming better at what we
do and celebrating all the good community colleges have to offer us, the
community, and the students.
—Nancy Wiley, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Cape Cod Community College (MA)
I was proud to bring my
faculty and staff to NISOD and experience the magic that happens in Austin! It
is quite a legacy; it is quite an experience!
—Phil Neal, Provost, Bowling
Geen Tchnical College (KY)
If you're looking for a
conference that will provide you with concrete strategies and pedagogical
choices, NISOD's the one for you.
