NISOD regional workshop

Odigia will be the exclusive sponsor of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development’s (NISOD) first-ever regional workshop Feb. 10, 2017, in Chattanooga, Tenn.

NISOD is committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning and leadership at community and technical colleges. This fits well with Odigia’s mission to revolutionize education for the 21st century, with tools that empower teachers and engage students.

“We are excited to partner with NISOD on this excellent opportunity to find new ways to help students build skills like critical thinking and collaboration, which are crucial to success in the modern workplace. Odigia is built to help instill these very skills,” said Joshua Moe, Odigia co-founder and CEO.

Based in Winston-Salem, N.C., Odigia is well-located to provide personal service to many of the institutions attending this first-ever regional NISOD workshop.

We’re here to help teachers

Connect with the Odigia team at the NISOD regional workshop, and let’s start a conversation! We love to talk with educators who are interested in tools that will empower them to create a more immersive, engaging experience that supports their students’ individual needs and learning styles.

Look for our table and talk to us about the problems you’re trying to solve in the classroom. Odigia’s products are built as a direct response to many of these common problems.

“We are a partner that can help community colleges address some of the specific problems they are facing right now,” said Nathan Battle, Odigia’s Academic Success Director. Battle will attend the regional workshop, along with Matt Watkins, Academic Success Manager.

Reducing student costs, boosting retention and outcomes and fostering stronger engagement  are all goals that Odigia can help achieve at your institution.

From empowering teachers with an efficient, user-friendly platform to informing them with real-time data, Odigia is made to help educators keep their focus on the important work of teaching.

Odigia is also built to help students interact with content in a way that matches their individual learning styles, and that builds the skills of critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and collaboration, which are critical in today’s workplace.

A resource for teaching soft skills

The NISOD regional workshop focuses on some of the very skills Odigia’s digital teaching and learning tools are designed to foster.

The program includes a session entitled, “How to Teach Critical Thinking” led by John Eigenauer, a professor of philosophy and computer science at Taft College. A second session, entitled, “Emotional Intelligence, Efficacy and Success,” will focus on fostering attitudes that promote better engagement and collaboration in the classroom.
