Nicolet College faculty share knowledge, advanced skills at international conference

Nicolet College was well represented at the 41st annual National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development international conference held recently.

Two instructors led presentations and a third honored with an all-expense-paid scholarship to attend the four-day conference held in Austin, Texas, the school announced in a press release.

Regarded as the definitive professional gathering of community and technical college educators and administrators, the conference attracted about 1,000 higher education professionals from across the U.S., Canada and other countries, the release states.

Nicolet College University Transfer English Instructor Ed O'Casey and Information Technology Instructor Regis Brost led a presentation on the implementation of Nicolet My Way, which includes the new Competency-Based Education (CBE) learning format.

Under the highly flexible CBE design, semester-long courses are divided into modules and students work through the modules at their own pace, utilizing a combination of online and face-to-face open lab instruction.

Students can also start CBE classes at numerous times throughout the year, rather than only at the start of a traditional semester, the release notes.

Nicolet's criminal justice services specialist and academy director Tim Gerdmann applied for and was one of only five individuals to receive a Suanne Davis Roueche Faculty Conference Scholarship to attend the event.

In his scholarship application, Gerdmann noted he was interested in attending the conference to learn skills to recruit more Native American students into Nicolet criminal justice programs.

"We have a large Native American population in our district and they are very underrepresented in our criminal justice student population," Gerdmann said. "With the knowledge gathered, I hope to bring more Native American students into our program and continue to foster growth of law enforcement from a job to a profession that represents all of those in our district."
