The POD Network is North America’s largest educational development community, represented in every US state and more than 30 countries. We support over 1,700 members across nearly 1,300 centers for teaching and learning to develop professionally through meaningful and sustained interaction.
“My first POD Network Conference introduced me to a whole new type of convention: one where workshops were truly practical, participants were just as important as presenters, an atmosphere of openness and warmth underscored a real dedication to teaching, and strangers quickly became colleague and friends.”
“I have participated in every Annual POD Network Conference since 1976, save one. It is the only professional meeting I attend primarily for self-renewal. It always feels good.”

“The POD Network helped me enormously even before I joined. I received information, encouragement, referrals, and many other kinds of assistance from 100% of the members I contacted. Far and away the most enriching and supportive professional organization I’ve belonged to.”
