Education Development Fund (EDF)

Introduction to the Education Development Fund

Funded by the Education Vice-Deans, the Education Development Fund (EDF) is intended to support new and innovative projects that align with our Faculty’s strategic priorities in education. The EDF is a seed fund designed to encourage those who are transitioning to, or are newly engaged in, education 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. Eligible projects should consider the goal of broad implementation and impact across our academic programs represented by the Vice-Deans of Education: MD Education, Post MD Education (Postgraduate & Continuing Professional Development), Graduate and Life Sciences Education in the Faculty of Medicine (including basic sciences, and the rehabilitation sciences).

EDF funded projects can either be an Educational Innovation and Development project OR an Education Research project. 

Innovation and development project:  A project, practically related to a course or course materials, with the objective of improving existing curricula through encouraging new directions in education, enhancing integration and collaboration between portfolios, facilitating critical reflection about best practices, and/or expanding the impact of educational advancement.  The development of education materials, products and resources will be considered.

Research project:  The search for and production of new knowledge. Designed to produce data or results that will result in feasible and sustainable impact and influence and will encourage innovation in teaching practices and effectiveness.

A strong evaluative component is expected in each project and the outcomes should produce results that can be disseminated.

Funding will be provided to a maximum of $10,000 per project. As there is a required departmental match, funding for your project could total $20,000. Funding will be provided for one year, effective June 30, of the year of funding. 

Projects must not have received funding from another source to support the same work. National or international projects that reflect the strategic goals of the Faculty are acceptable to the Vice-Deans for funding, provided that there is evidence of substantial impact within the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine community. Larger more complex projects with multiple and previously funded phases will be reviewed carefully to ensure that educational components are explicitly outlined within the application.

The 2020 EDF Cycle is now closed

Please carefully review each of the sections below that describe requirements and responsibilities for the application process and for grant holders.

The Centre for Faculty Development offers a webinar titled: Developing a Grant Proposal for Education Research or ScholarshipThis 1-hour webinar will focus on building participants' knowledge of the key components to consider when developing an education research or scholarship grant proposal with a focus for those considering applying to the EDF.  The webinar will take place on December 17, 2019 from 12 - 1pm.  Participants may register online.

Should you have any questions about the Fund or the Call for Applications, please do not hesitate to contact The Office of the Education Vice-Deans, at edudeans@utoronto.ca or 416-946-8067.

All applications must be submitted online.

 

Eligibility & Team Member Roles

As the EDF is designed to encourage faculty members who are transitioning to or newly engaged in education scholarship, it is important to distinguish between and among potential roles for team members.

Faculty members who serve in senior administrative or research positions (Vice Chairs, Program, Curriculum and Course Directors, Clerkship, Pre Clerkship Directors, Research Directors and those considered to be Senior Education Scientists and Consultants) MAY ONLY be listed as "Senior Advisors".

In addition to listing team members and providing contact information for departmental contacts, the EDF application will ask you to provide a brief description of the team including roles and responsibilities of team members.

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR (PI) and CO-PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR (Co-PI):

The PI and the Co-PI (if applicable) must be a faculty member who is newly engaged in education scholarship in basic, clinical or rehabilitation sciences at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine. The PI and the Co-PI will take responsibility for the overall project design, development and completion. The EDF Adjudication Committee defines 'newly engaged' as a faculty member who has not served as PI or Co-PI on more than two previously funded education research grants. Education Scientists are eligible to apply as PI or Co-PI only within the first three years of their academic appointment and must not have received more than one previously funded education research grant.

At the application stage, the PI and the Co-PI agree to disclose all other sources approached for funding the project. If the PI or Co-PI has previously been awarded an EDF grant, they are eligible to apply for funding for a new project (or component of an earlier project) only if they have fulfilled all of the obligations and conditions for the previously awarded project.

It is in the spirit of the Education Development Fund to encourage collaborations between Clinician Educators and Education Scientists and therefore applicants are asked to please consider the following:

i. Education Scientists who apply as the Principal Investigator or as Co-PI are strongly encouraged to ensure that their project teams include Clinician Educators in order to assist with the translational and practical application of their projects.

ii. Clinician Educators are strongly encouraged to consult with either departmentally sourced or hospital based Education Scientists and resources as they may have valuable input and would be able to strengthen project methodology, project evaluation and research dissemination.

PROJECT COLLABORATORS:

A collaborator must be a faculty member, learner, OR staff within the Faculty of Medicine or its affiliated hospitals and engaged in the educational activities in basic, clinical or rehabilitation sciences at the University of Toronto, in either an administrative, project management or research capacity. Assigned roles and responsibilities for each of the project collaborators must be clearly outlined in the project application.

SENIOR ADVISOR:

A Senior Advisor must be a faculty member engaged in the educational activities in basic, clinical or rehabilitation sciences at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine. They must also agree to serve in an advisory or mentorship capacity to the overall project design, development and completion.

Faculty members who serve in senior administrative or research positions (Vice Chairs, Program, Curriculum and Course Directors, Clerkship, Pre Clerkship Directors, Research Directors and those considered to be Senior Education Scientists and Consultants) MAY ONLY  be listed as Senior Advisors/Mentors. 

EXCLUSIONS

Members of the senior decanal team i.e., Vice, Associate or Assistant decanal, Departmental Chairs, Division Chiefs and/or EDF committee members are not eligible to apply for EDF projects in any capacity.

Those who are listed as being compensated as project managers, research assistants completing transcription and analysis, or for providing consultation services within the project budget MAY NOT be listed as PI, Co-PI, or Collaborator.

Those who are supervisors of resident or graduate student projects are not eligible to serve as PI or CO PI. They may serve as a Senior Advisor.

 

 

 

Department Chair's Endorsement

Applications must upload a letter of support from the Faculty of Medicine Academic Department Chair (or the Vice-Chair Education if designated) of each Principal Investigator. The letter of support should outline the potential for meaningful incorporation and sustainability in the Faculty of Medicine education programs and the provision of support for the Project Leader to attend development sessions and complete the dissemination plan. For a single PI, the letter must confirm that secured matched funding is in place. This letter should also confirm the source of the matching funds and the amount. In the case of two PIs, at least one letter must confirm that secured matched funding is in place, confirm the source of the matching funds and the amount.

Project endorsement from Hospital Clinical Departments, University or Hospital Division Chiefs, Medical Education Offices, Research Departments or Managers, will not be accepted.

Budgets must reflect a true 1:1 match within budget columns.  Academic department funds could include funds from other granting agencies and sources received by the supporting academic department.  In the spirit of transparency, applicants are encouraged to list ‘other’ funds outside of the 1:1 match within their budget. University base budget or operating funds cannot be used to provide the match.

The Office of the Education Vice-Deans will transfer the awarded funds to the Academic Department of the Principal Investigator in the Faculty of Medicine. Applicants are expected to provide necessary FIS numbers to facilitate this transfer within 4 weeks of the application approval. It is the responsibility of the applicant to submit required information by July 3, 2020 or the offer of funding will be withdrawn. It is expected that departmental business officers work closely with the successful applicants to facilitate this transfer.  The Department will be responsible for the disbursement of funds to the Principal Investigator.
