We invite you to join us this year as we Envision the Future: Developing Equitable Opportunities for Success (Educational Developer success → Instructor success → Student success) at our institutions. The 48th annual POD Network conference envisions what the future of educational development might look like amid rapid changes in our lives, institutions, and societies. As educational developers, we are in a unique position to influence the success of faculty, students, institutions, and our own programs. By seeing our work through these multiple lenses, we seek a more holistic view of how educational development (see POD definition of Educational Development) can drive and facilitate the ongoing pursuit of equity in higher education.

48th Annual POD Network Conference
November 14 @ 8:00 am - November 17 @ 5:00 pm
The Conference Team has been working to increase access to our conference, and one of the most effective ways to do this is to again offer online and on-the-ground venues; this year in Pittsburgh. Both experiences will offer the same “session types”—workshops, roundtables, the keynote, etc.—and provide opportunities for deep engagement with teaching and learning while interacting with fellow POD members.
A new feature this year is a day of “hybrid” sessions that allow attendees in Pittsburgh and online to connect and learn together. The keynote speaker presentation will also be live streamed to virtual attendees. We are also offering a “dual venue” option: attend both Pittsburgh AND online conferences for a reduced rate. You will have the option to attend the online sessions as they are presented during the conference (November 14-17), or watch the session recordings at a later time. Sessions will be recorded upon the approval of the facilitators and made available for a period of time (TBD) after November 17.
