Create @ POD 2011

During our professional conference, when we are immersed in all things educational development (ED), it’s easy to lose track of critical thinking’s twin—creative thinking. create@POD invites conference participants to engage in creative activity and gives them permission to take risks and to be open to new connections that may come from unexpected combinations of ideas.

On the evening of Thursday, October 27, creative projects will be presented, winners selected, and prizes awarded! Winning projects will also be displayed throughout the conference. All attendees are invited to take part in this exciting— yet relaxed—event, which will include a cash bar.

Members of POD and HBCUFDN attending the 2011 POD/HBCUFDN conference in Atlanta may submit proposals for creative works.
