The soon-to-be-launched EdCan Network continues the CEA’s 125-year tradition as the sole independent pan-Canadian organization connecting thousands of K-12, post-secondary and Indigenous educators with a critical space for open dialogue and consensus-building to bridge the gaps between education policy, research and classroom practice. We do this with our Education Canada Magazine, professional learning programs, fact sheets and events – featuring Canadian and international thought leaders, and courageous educators. Our network cuts through the rhetoric to constantly shatter those long-held education myths by amplifying a pragmatic evidence-based perspective on what really works for providing all students with optimal learning experiences.
The EdCan Network’s Digital Marketing Coordinator manages our social media accounts, member e-newsletters, web content publishing, produces high quality multimedia presentations and reports, and films and edits short videos – in both English and French – to tell our members’ stories, promote our research, events and learning products to grow traffic and entice new members to join our network. The ideal candidate is adaptable, strategic, independent and knows how to leverage social media to build traffic for our content. Knowledge of videography and post-production would be considered distinct assets, or to have the capacity to master these skills quickly and effectively. This could be a telecommuting position for the right candidate residing outside of the Greater Toronto Area.
