Faculty of Medicine eLearning Task Force (eLTF)

In January 2014, the Faculty of Medicine launched an eLearning Task Force, co-chaired by Professors Dimitri Anastakis, Vice Dean of Continuing Professional Development, and Jay Rosenfield, Vice Dean of Undergraduate Medical Professions Education.

The eLearning Task Force is currently conducting a high-level SWOT and Gap Analysis within the Faculty of Medicine community to identify the gaps between where we are today and where we want to be over the next decade and beyond. Findings and recommendations from the Task Force will further position the faculty as a leader in eLearning (i.e., teaching, learning and scholarship) across the education continuum and 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.

Members of the Faculty of Medicine community are invited to contribute to this project by sharing the unique eLearning strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that are experienced within individual teaching and learning environments through a brief survey.

More information about the Task Force and its working groups can be found via the eLearning Task Force website.
