What’s up with NCSPOD?

Have you been wondering what’s going on with NCSPOD? Have you noticed that there’s been some recent changes on the NCSPOD website? Well, there’s a lot we would like to share with you.

The NCSPOD Board has taken a brief hiatus this year to reflect, explore and embrace the future. We have been examining:

  • the emerging learning landscape in professional development, adult education, community colleges, and corporate learning;
  • 21st learning competencies for educators and leaders;
  • the impact of educational technology and analytics;
  • and future trends in professional development.

And now, we’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Given the undeniable evolution in learning and professional development, it is essential that NCSPOD also evolves, to best serve your professional development needs. The NCSPOD Board is currently in the process of designing new services for our members; programs that will help you to be prepared for the training and development needs of the learners you serve.
