COMMUNICATIONS TOOLS

Communications Tools for ACDE Members

This page contains a suite of elements to help you promote ACDE and the ACDE Accords on your website, in your social media accounts, in communications to your own faculty or senior administration, and to external groups and events (ministries, conference presentations, Indigenous communities, etc.). In order to keep the ACDE brand strong, we encourage you to use these elements as they are presented and not to modify them. If you require additional formats, please contact Katy Ellsworth at katy.ellsworth@acde-acde.ca.

About ACDE

This “boilerplate” text can be used in any communications material that you produce. Please do not alter the text.

Longer text:

The Association of Canadian Deans of Education (ACDE) is an association of Deans, Directors, or Chairs of Canadian Faculties, Schools, Colleges, or Departments of Education committed to pan-Canadian leadership in professional and teacher education, educational research, and policy in universities and university-colleges. ACDE is a constituent association of the Canadian Society for the Study of Education.

 

ACDE’s mission rests on five underlying assumptions:

  • that high quality professional and teacher education together with robust and responsible educational policy are the foundations of a civil society and of Canada’s future in the global context;
  • that the role of the educator in a civil society is that of a public intellectual;
  • that quality professional and teacher education and sound educational policy are essential for individual and societal development;
  • that the affirmation and advancement of cultural diversity depends on a well-developed educational system and well-educated teachers; and
  • that research and practice are mutually constitutive.

ACDE’s mission is therefore to foster professional and teacher education, engage in educational research, and participate in educational policy development. ACDE supports access, participation, and success in education for all. ACDE supports the professional development of educators through undergraduate study, initial teacher education, graduate study and continuing professional development. ACDE is committed to high quality educational research and to developing policies and initiatives in conjunction with other educational partners such as provincial governments, colleges of teachers, teacher organizations, and professional societies and organizations.

Shorter text:

Logos

The ACDE logo is available for ACDE members to use on faculty, college, school, or departmental communications materials that reference ACDE or an ACDE Accord. If you require a different format, please contact Katy Ellsworth at katy.ellsworth@acde-acde.ca

If you wish to print paper copies for distribution, for example for a presentation or faculty meeting, we suggest that you use these one-page summaries, which provide highlights from the Accord and direct readers to the ACDE site for further details.

Social Media

If you plan to refer to the Accords in a social media campaign (e.g., perhaps in relation to a new program or initiative in your faculty), please use any of the following jpeg images to support your message. Please consider using the hashtag #ACDEAccords, as well.

Videos

Each ACDE Accord has an associated video, designed to present highlights of the Accord in a digestible format. We encourage ACDE members to provide links to these videos on their own websites. The embed codes are:

Dean’s Message

Many ACDE members place a personalized “dean’s message” on their institutional homepage. Please consider this as a place to highlight the Accords, either by making the PDFs available on your site or by linking to ACDE. Here are several models for you to consider:

Documenting Use of the Accords

We are compiling a record of how ACDE members and others use the Accords and related tools. We encourage you to inform by downloading and completing the PDF file, and sending it on to Katy Ellsworth katy.ellsworth@acde-acde.ca, or simply by emailing the relevant details to Katy.
