The aim of this presentation is to give a snapshot of current local and international practices in technology
enhanced learning (TEL), and then take a peek into the future. An overview of current use of TEL in
undergraduate medical education at NUS, underpinning educational programs at NUS including case
studies, and examples of use of TEL in postgraduate training and continuous education and training (CET)
at NUHS will be made, as well as use of TEL internationally in medical education, and faculty
development at CenMED NUS (including online faculty development programs and publications like The
Asia Paciﬁc Scholar or TAPS), APMEC and AMEE, with Webinars and Online Courses, not to mention
online platforms like MedEdWorld, AMEE guides and publications like MedEdPublish and Medical
Teacher, which have gained greater signiﬁcance with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Early use of newer
examples of TEL will be reviewed, including Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR and AR), as well as use
of Artiﬁcial Intelligence (AI) and Serious Games. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of
factors encouraging adoption of TEL, and challenges to widespread implementation of current and newer
methods of TEL.
