A well-known Montreal landmark building

42nd Annual POD Network Conference

Montreal, Quebec, October 25-29, 2017

Our conference theme was Defining What Matters: Understanding and Enhancing the Impact of Educational Development. We offered this theme in part as a response to our membership’s desire to refine the ways we assess the impacts of our work, but also as an opportunity to explore more deeply what it means to matter in our field—to ourselves, our colleagues, our clients and collaborators, and our communities. By examining that broader view of impact, we hoped to recognize and share the value of our work, as well as discover paths for expanding our opportunities to matter within higher education.
