For more than a decade, TeamUP, Cengage Learning’s peer-to-peer faculty development group, has been supporting instructors through innovative and engaging workshops and resources. Now, TeamUP and NISOD have partnered to make these resources more readily available to community and technical college instructors at NISOD’s 325 member institutions across the United States and Canada.

TeamUP worked closely with NISOD to create a portal that offers instant access to a robust suite of teaching tools, research-based content, and presentations on such relevant topics as active learning strategies, student success, retention and assessment. To ensure that all members have access to these meaningful continuing education opportunities, this portal will be provided to faculty at NISOD member institutions at a discounted rate. What’s more, all of these opportunities are eligible for continuing education credit.

The Cengage Learning TeamUP NISOD Portal: Affordable, Accessible, and Easy to Use

  • Through the TeamUP Professional Development Portal, instructors can acquire needed continuing education credit on their own time and at their own pace.
  • A simple, streamlined interface and design allows instructors to experience the content without learning a new system.
  • The portal can be linked to any Learning Management System or website.
