Spirit of POD Award Nominations | Deadline: September 28 2012

Please consider nominating a POD colleague for the Spirit of POD Award.  The deadline for 2012 nominations is: Friday, September 28th via WikiPODia.

This award recognizes POD members who make significant, long-lasting contributions to POD members, the organization as a whole, and the educational development profession. Recipients should reflect some combination of the attributes below, but may also contribute positively in other ways:

1.   Serving the organization and its members through steady participation in POD in more than routine ways;
2.    Sharing knowledge, experience, materials, ideas, and support freely with other POD members;
3.    Exercising innovative leadership in the organization;
4.    Exemplifying the philosophy, principles, and practices of POD, such as generosity of spirit, kindness, compassion, sincerity, and civility;
5.    Contributing substantially to the profession of faculty, instructional and organizational development;
6.    Being actively involved in POD for at least 10 years.

New this year, nominations will be taken through an online form found via the Spirit of POD Award WikiPODia site:  .  Further details appear on the WikiPODia site.  We are also asking that nominators solicit and include examples from other POD members as part of the nomination to demonstrate a convergence of evidence.  Such solicitation should not be done via a public venue such as the POD listserv since the identity of any recipient is kept secret until the banquet at the annual conference.  Given the nature of this award, self-nominations are not accepted.

Please send any questions to Donna Ellis, Spirit of POD Award subcommittee chair, at

Thank you,
