The Community of Associate Deans Research in Education (cADRE) helps to facilitate and guide collaborative research on shared issues and promote a culture of research cooperation.
cADRE was established by ACDE in 2013 to:
- Provide advice and make recommendations to ACDE on policies and matters relating to Educational Research.
- Provide advice on processes to assist ACDE in achieving and maintaining excellence in Educational Research.
- Extend the links and enhance collaboration between educational researchers, policy makers and the wider community to advance Educational Research.
- Provide a collegial forum for discussion, debate and recommendations on Educational Research, including the role of Associate Deans (Research).
