About Quad-POD

Quad-POD (Professional Organizational Developers) is a consortium of leaders from the four institutions of higher education in Genesee County and includes Baker College of Flint, Kettering University, Mott Community College and the University of Michigan-Flint.

Quad-POD recognizes that quality teaching practices benefit students directly and that faculty need to be engaged in continuous professional development as teachers. Faculty are encouraged to become more reflective about their teaching practices, familiar with the literature regarding effective teaching and learning practices, and incorporate new methods and technologies into their teaching. We encourage faculty to learn and share successful practices to improve learning outcomes and increase cooperation among institutions.
