Deery and Kinser are NISOD Award Recipients
Dr. Brian Deery and Cindy Kinser are South Florida State College’s recipients of the 2013 National Institute for State and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence in Teaching Awards.
Dr. Deery is a professor of psychology. Kinser is the chair of the Business and Computer Technologies Department and a professor for the medical secretarial program.
SFSC’s NISOD award recipients are typically those who received the faculty President’s Award the previous year, as Dr. Deery and Kinser did in December 2012. Deery accepted his NISOD award in May at the institute’s annual convention at the University of Texas at Austin. Kinser received hers Aug. 19 during convocation.
Dr. Leana Revell, vice president, educational and student services, said faculty Presidents Award recipients are nominated and selected by their colleagues, which puts them in good standing for NISOD awards.
“The NISOD Excellence in Teaching Awards recognize faculty who are our best and brightest, and provide excellent teaching in the classroom,” Dr. Revell said.
Formed in 1978, NISOD is dedicated to the professional development of faculty, administrators, and staff and to the continued improvement of teaching and learning. It has presented its Teaching in Excellence Awards each year since 1984.
