Location: Online Webinar

Presented by CUGH. Enabling high quality health professions education is key to ensuring high quality healthcare globally. Educational partnerships between high and low resource settings have been one way to try to advance this goal. The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC), an educational partnership between the University of Toronto (UofT) and Addis Ababa University (AAU) is one such partnership. The TAAAC model was designed to help address an urgent need for increased university faculty to teach in the massive expansion of universities in Ethiopia. As TAAAC has developed and expanded, faculty at both institutions have recognized the need to have clarity about the assumptions that underpin this shared work in order to address implicit issues of curriculum ownership, decision-making, control, expertise and funding.  

Join this webinar where the presenters will outline ways this partnership has considered these issues.
