43rd Annual POD Network Conference

Portland, Oregon, November 14-18, 2018

Leadership and managing change are two of the most pressing concerns POD Network Members face in their institutions and in the educational development profession. We believe that these two concepts, leadership and change, are naturally intertwined and combined them to form the 2018 conference theme.

Sessions addressing this theme considered the questions: Where in higher education is change already happening? And where is change needed but not happening—or not happening quickly enough? What kind of professional development do we need to become the leaders who are successful in navigating the changes on the horizon?
