NISOD's Innovation Abstracts, an enrichment resource for faculty and staff, will now be available weekly on Inside MC Online and MyMC. This publication is NISOD's flagship teaching strategies document which disseminates practitioner-written descriptions of successful teaching and learning practices and strategies, programs and initiatives each week of the academic year.
A past recipient of Innovation Abstracts, Dr. Clarice Somersall shares, "I know of the benefit of receiving timely information on a wide array of topics of interest to faculty, staff and administration from throughout Montgomery College."
