In order to be consistent with the ED Caucus national goals when we formalize in Ontario, we thought it best to post the EDC phrasing here:

By-Law Aims
To strengthen the position of STLHE as the professional/academic organization of choice for educational developers, and particularly for those practicing in Canada.
To pursue the aims of STLHE with particular attention to their application in educational development contexts.
To provide leadership in the professionalization of the educational development role.
To foster the advancement and evolution of educational development as a field of practice and scholarship.
To create a national forum where emerging and problematic educational development issues can be candidly discussed.
To create a collegial network within which information, strategies, and resources can be shared.
To facilitate communication among educational developers who are members of STLHE.
To provide professional development opportunities for experienced, new and potential educational developers.
To advocate, through STLHE, for educational development issues at a national level.

The EDC defines itself as a community of practice. Invited to join are members-in-good-standing of STLHE, who have current, former or imminent responsibility for planning, organizing, or delivery of educational development programmes or activities within a post-secondary institution, and who support the aims of the Caucus.
