Spartanburg Community College hosted a NISOD Regional Workshop titled “The Age of Artificial Intelligence and Learning” facilitated by Judith Cardenas. The support from NISOD made it very easy to host the workshop. They assisted with marketing to and registering participants, explained the desired room set up, and even ordered lunch! The workshop itself was terrific; it was definitely a hands-on experience and a great example of the power of active learning. Participants were thoroughly engaged throughout the entire workshop. The information and activities shared led me to consider how we interact with our students and the powerful impact that artificial intelligence processes could have on improving that interaction. I would definitely recommend hosting a NISOD Regional Workshop to any college interested in high-quality professional development opportunities.
I have received several thank you’s from our faculty. I would love to host another Regional Workshop. It’s a great way for me to offer high-quality professional development to our faculty and staff.
Regional Workshops supplement NISOD’s offerings of professional development programs and resources, which culminate with NISOD’s Annual International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence held every Memorial Day weekend in Austin, Texas. NISOD’s annual conference is noted as the premier convening of community and technical college faculty, administrators, and staff who strive for excellence in leadership, teaching, and learning.
