Recently, Dr. Deborah Vess, East Georgia State College’s Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, had an article, “Interdisciplinary Studies Then and Now: Expanding Concepts of Integrative Teaching and Learning,” published as part of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) 40th Anniversary.
The article, titled “Promoting Interdisciplinary Studies,” was originally published in Innovations Abstracts Volume XVI, No. 19 in September of 1994, and has been updated to catch up with current trends in education. It was published in the September 27, 2018 (Volume XL, No. 31) Innovation Abstracts: Legacy Edition. In the article, Dr. Vess describes how innovative approaches in colleges have evolved over the past 20 years. The Innovation Abstracts: Legacy Edition series is in honor of the NISOD 40th Anniversary and is published by the University of Texas/NISOD organization. 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. Authors share their best ideas about programs, projects, and strategies that improve students’ higher education experiences.
Dr. Vess’s article can be found online at https://www.nisod.org/2018/09/27/xl_31/ and is available to NISOD members only.
