Horizon scanning and engagement

The TEL Programme has developed the process for understanding new and emerging technologies in health and care education and how these can be employed to benefit the workforce. Working with partner organisations across the system to share this learning and insight is crucial for the benefit of the health and care system.


Horizon scanning

Horizon scanning explores the opportunities, implications and readiness of the latest technologies and their relevance for education and training in health and care.

The project provides:

  • An understanding of the opportunities available of new and emerging technologies in health and care education
  • An opportunity to share learning for the benefit of the wider system.

As part of this work, we discuss the likely impact of new technologies and explore what the future of technology enhanced learning in healthcare might be like.

We have run workshop activities, both online and face to face, to help generate creative ideas about the future of TEL in healthcare. Our ‘future view personas’ were created by clinicians, industry experts and “healthtech” entrepreneurs to help us envision how healthcare workers might be using technology to learn in 2021.
