The second project the subcommittee will undertake is to develop a global strategy for online learning over the next five years. This strategy will build on the ARHP Online Learning Position Paper that was approved by the ARHP Executive Committee in November 2015 and the recently completed ACR/ARHP Strategic Plan for 2017–2022. Topics for discussion will be strategies to best foster individualized online learning, the most appropriate format for online educational modules, tools to support a standardized approach to online educational development and strategies for integrating onsite and online learning.
