Carol Hurney, the 2022 POD President shares her message to the conference attendees titled, “Re:Calibrating Your Educational Development Compasses.” Navigating the complex landscapes of higher education as educational developers requires trustworthy compasses we can use to guide our work, inform our career paths, and support the ways we maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Given the changing nature of our work and lives, how can we ensure that our compasses are calibrated to guide us as we strive to enhance the academic missions we support, align our personal and professional values, and productively guide our career paths? During this address, we will explore ways to Re:Calibrate our compasses using resources that can help us negotiate unexpected terrain and guide us to our true North.
