SIG Mission: The mission of the STEM SIG is to support and connect colleagues within POD Network who are actively engaged in STEM educational development and instruction. The STEM SIG will provide a stable infrastructure for professional networking and peer assistance within and across STEM fields and institutional categories. It will also create capacity to organize POD Network programming such as conference sessions/workshops and related intervening events (online and in-person). In addition, the STEM SIG seeks to aggregate resources for practitioners who support STEM instruction and instructors and to support the dissemination of scholarship related to STEM educational development. An additional goal is to provide a bridge for communication and coordination with organizations involved in STEM education at a national level.
