Dr. Aaron Peterson (Department of Leadership and Learning) presented with colleague Dr. Jason Kaufman (Minnesota State University, Mankato) for the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) 2021 Webinar Series.  NISOD originates from the University of Texas at Austin, and it is committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning, and leadership at community and technical colleges.

Drs. Peterson’s and Kaufman’s presentation titled, “Coping with COVID: A Snapshot of Faculty Skills, Challenges, and Lessons Learned” focused on their research they conducted with two-year faculty members within the MinnState system this past summer.  The research aimed to get a better understanding of the challenges two-year faculty members were faced with in making the transition to online course delivery due to the pandemic.
