Home/Virtual Events/Connections & Conversations

CONNECTIONS and CONVERSATIONS are virtual learning circles that are designed to create opportunities for peer-to-peer learning around topics that are relevant to community and technical college educators. Along with hearing a variety of views around the topics being discussed, participants have the opportunity to connect in a real way with others who are experiencing similar challenges. Come network, engage, and form professional relationships with your colleagues! (Must be from a NISOD member college to participate.)

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time networking with like-minded folks committed to student success. Sharing resources and listening to the passion of others was refreshing when we all have so much going on.” – Jairo McMican, Central Carolina Community College

“Thank you for yesterday’s Connections & Conversations, that was great conversation and extremely informative as each college’s perspective is different and unique to so many factors. I am excited to see what the [next] session will hold.” – Ruthie Davis, Nash Community College
