As outlined in our Constitution, COED defines itself as a community of practice. All those who have current, former, or imminent responsibility for planning, organizing, or delivery of educational development programs or activities within post-secondary education in Ontario, and who support the aims of COED are invited to join.

To become a COED member, you will need to join this website. You can do this by first creating an account (this link opens in a new window). Registering for an account on this page automatically makes you a member of COED, and secures your eligibility to participate in Council governance (such as elections for the Council Executive). Creating a COED|CFPO membership on this website ensures you are able to vote in our annual elections. Memberships are manually approved, so please be patient as we check for new members bi-weekly.

Most communication goes through the COED Listserv which we recommend all members join. Instructions to subscribe to (or unsubscribe from) the listserv is provided below.
