Funded by the Education Vice-Deans, the Education Development Fund is intended to support new and innovative projects that align with our Faculty’s strategic directions in education around the core values of innovation, integration and impact in education. It is a seed fund designed to encourage faculty who are newly engaged in educational scholarship to further their career development. Funding has traditionally been awarded to initiatives that focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of courses, programs and curricula including faculty development, continuing education and clinical learning initiatives. Hence, the deliverables for each cycle are closely aligned with the ongoing goals and objectives of education programs in the Faculty of Medicine.
Eligible projects should consider the goal of broad implementation across our academic programs represented by the Vice-Deans of Education: MD Education, Post MD Education (Postgraduate & Continuing Professional Development), and Graduate and Life Sciences Education in the Faculty of Medicine (including basic sciences, and the rehabilitation sciences).
More information about the competition and application process can be found at the EDF webpage.
