Committee on Educational Technology (CET)


The Committee on Educational Technology (CET) advises the IT Governance Steering Committee (ITGSC) in the domain of educational technologies across the UCSF enterprise.  

This committee focuses on the use of technologies to support and enhance learning in UCSF’s physical learning spaces and online. CET advocates for the financial, materiel and human resources required to support the ideal educational technology environment, and collaborates with the Educational Technology Operations Group (ETOG) to implement decisions and vision of ITGSC and the Educational Deans Council (EDC). The committee is asked to think holistically, innovatively, and strategically about how technology can support the integration of education in all aspects of the university’s mission including patient care, research, and advancing health worldwide.

In the areas of advocacy, change management, and innovation, the CET will: 


  • In collaboration with UCSF educational programs, develop and guide an educational technology vision and strategy that supports effective pedagogy, program needs, and learner expectations;
  • Support and promote participation in UC-wide educational technology initiatives;
  • Advise on campus IT policy and procedures;
  • Identify areas of need from faculty, learner and other relevant stakeholders.

  • Support and facilitate stakeholder input on pilot technology solutions.

The committee meets for 90 minutes each month to review and discuss relevant initiatives and projects, including a monthly update from the Chair of ETOG. The committee will maintain interprofessional representation in order to achieve its charge and facilitate collaboration across the mission.
