The External Partnerships and Outreach Committee supports the mission of the POD Network by administratively support partnerships with the POD Network and other organizations whose mission or goals align with our organization. EPOC also develops Member Outreach Kits topically organized to support the work of members as educational developers. Outreach Kits include questions educational developers should consider along with some publications that address these questions. Outreach Kits also include the POD Speaks publication, which provide insights from POD members to campus administrators seeking to better understand how to support educational development leaders and centers at their institutions.

POD Speaks

These short, pithy, evidence-based papers, written for a wide audience of higher education professionals, will also enhance the visibility of the POD Network, highlighting the work educational developers do and underscoring the ways that the POD Network’s expertise can contribute to discussion of important issues.
