The NISOD Papers, an occasional publication, is NISOD’s version of a white paper series that educates our audience or explains a particular issue relevant to community and technical college educators. The NISOD Papers covers an array of diverse topics: professional development, emerging technologies, crisis communication, education reform, and more. It complements NISOD’s weekly Innovation Abstracts, which focuses on teaching and learning topics and is directed specifically toward faculty members.
