NISOD - Innovation Abstracts

Each week faculty, administrators, and staff at NISOD member colleges receive Innovation Abstracts, NISOD’s flagship teaching and learning publication, written by and for community and technical college practitioners.

A full academic year’s collection features a wide array of topics with each issue having something for everyone. Opinions and views expressed in Innovation Abstracts are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of NISOD.
