Member Spotlight Question and Answer
Why is Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society a NISOD Member?
Because we rely on college faculty, administrators, and staff to help us achieve our mission at the individual chapter level, partnering with NISOD is a great way for us to connect with hard-working and award-winning college faculty who are dedicated to helping students succeed. Just as we want to grow our student membership, we also want to recruit more faculty to serve as Phi Theta Kappa chapter advisors, where they will not only give opportunities to students, but also have opportunities themselves to serve in leadership roles, gain professional development, and receive awards to pursue personal and professional projects.
Which NISOD benefits does Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society use the most and how?
We find the annual conference most beneficial for a few reasons. We enjoy networking with all college educators because we get to see the many innovative ways educators are connecting with their students. The special sessions and workshops keep us up to date on the issues facing colleges and their students, and we learn trends in teaching that we can incorporate into the courses and curricula we develop for our advisors and members. We’ve conducted workshops at the conference in the past, and for two years we hosted training for our chapter advisors onsite, saving advisors with a limited travel budget both time and money.
