Mission

The overall mission of the AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee is to guide AMEE’s TEL and related activities.  The focus is on enhancing teaching and learning by the use of general education technologies with special emphasis on the education pedagogies underlying their use. It supports the AMEE Executive Committee in achieving its strategic goals by providing advice and support regarding the AMEE Conference, an eLearning symposium every 3 years, MedEdWorld and online tools for AMEE membership activities.

What we do

The following is a summary of the TEL Committee’s activities. In addition, individual members have given presentations and produced a range of publications dealing with the use of technology in medical education.

Current Activities:

  • Developments of a consensus statement on emergent and current trends in eLearning.
  • Working with Learning Toolbox to evaluate the success of using it for future AMEE ePosters.

Ongoing / Repeated Activities:

Previous Activities:

  • Evaluated Learning Toolbox as the ePoster format for AMEE2017, and adopted (2017).
  • At AMEE2016, Organized and delivered a full-day pre-conference workshop: Creating blended learning approaches, and an in-conference symposium: Big learning from small screens: using mobile technology in medical education
  • At AMEE2015, organized and delivered the pre-conference symposium on eLearning in medical education. The symposium included keynote speakers, short communications, workshops, ePosters, panel discussions and an interactive ‘Show and Tell’ session. Following this success, it was decided to repeat this triennially. We also organized a follow-up symposium: Shaping the future of Technology Enhanced Learning: Take home messages from the Symposium (with Stephen Downes).
  • In 2015 we organized and ran the first AMEEHacks Hackathon. Over 230 participants joined the event. Following this success, it was decided to repeat this biennially.
  • Under guidance of the committee, we organized and supervised the first use of the PechaKucha™ format at an AMEE conference.  Following this success, the format was adopted for future conferences.
  • On request from AMEE Executive, we developed in 2012 a social media strategy “for creating a richer conference experience through the use of electronic media”.  This strategy formed the basis for future use of social media by AMEE, especially at the annual AMEE conference.
  • AMEE 2017: Coordinating with Elsevier in the running of the AMEE 2017 Hackathon, including providing educational and technical mentoring for the teams.

Committee Innovation Development Grant

Purpose
 
To stimulate the development of innovative approaches for the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning in health professions education.
 
Background
 
The AMEE TEL Committee Innovation Development Grant provides a stimulus for health professions educators to be creative in the development of new solutions to the educational challenges that they face. Examples of these educational challenges include exploring the potential application of a new technology, using a well-established technology in a novel way, or adapting currently available technology for low resource settings. The educational challenge and the development of a new and innovative solution to the challenge is entirely the choice of the applicant – but it should be creative and innovative!

Four grants, each of £1,000, will be awarded by the TEL Committee. Only AMEE individual or student members may apply.
