Faculty of Medicine eLearning Task Force (eLTF)



In 2014, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto embarked on a reflective and forward-looking exercise to explore the current state of eLearning activities and to chart a path forward to establish the Faculty as a current and future leader in medical education eLearning curricula and technology and to anticipate future technological needs.

The Task Force gathered information through surveys, data collection and analysis, and focused stakeholder interviews, and undertook an internal assessment of eLearning scholarship, resources (including financial, technological, space and human resources), curricula design and implementation, awards and grants, and future requirements.

We are pleased to share that the Task Force’s final report has been completed, and that both the report and detailed working group
findings are available via the eLearning Task Force website: www.innovatingedu.ca/elearning

A series of strategic recommendations have been developed as a result of this comprehensive assessment, which established a roadmap to advance the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto as a global leader in eLearning across the education continuum. These recommendations cluster around four key themes: Strategic Planning, Faculty Development and Scholarship, Funding and Infrastructure and Resources.
The Task Force’s recommendations will enable us to position the Faculty of Medicine to achieve a future state as a leader in eLearning (i.e., teaching, learning and scholarship) across the education continuum. Their findings will lay the foundation to ensure that we have the competencies and infrastructure to provide the best education for today’s and tomorrow’s learners.
