York University's eLearning Mandate

The University Academic Plan (2010) refers to the need to demonstrate our commitment to academic quality, student success and engagement and outreach in relation to teaching and learning by “supporting innovative and flexible curriculum delivery through online and hybrid [blended] courses, as well as other elements of technology enhanced learning” (UAP, 2010: 8).

In the Spring of 2012, the Academic Technology Advisory (ATA) Group was established to provide eLearning advice and guidance to University executive leadership on the use of technology in enhancing the quality of teaching and learning and the overall academic experience of York’s students. The first task that this group was mandated to undertake was the development of high level plans and strategies to guide the innovative use of technology in advancing the University’s strategic priorities. A Case for Change eLearning Integration at York University was submitted to the Vice-President Academic & Provost in January 2013. The recommendations cited in the paper are currently being implemented.
