Announcing the NISOD Online Convenings

NISOD’s mission has always been to provide budget-friendly, high-quality, and faculty-focused programs and resources for community and technical colleges that want to make the most of their professional development dollars. Since the coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed the way all of us now function, we’re happy to announce that we’ve restructured our 2020 annual conference as a series of online convenings. These events will feature purposefully selected presentations originally planned for our annual onsite conference.

In these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to retain a sense of engagement and professional learning with colleagues. While showing up physically at a conference, workshop, or other face-to-face meeting might not currently be possible, below are ways to network and engage in professional learning. Specific presentation topics and descriptions will be available shortly.

If you registered and paid for the onsite conference, you can choose to apply your registration to any of these online convenings and be refunded any remaining monies. Please contact Kelley Berley for details.
