Technology-assisted faculty development is important to consider in today's diverse teaching and learning settings. Faculty development has traditionally been provided either face-to-face or through online modules. These modalities have limitations. In particular, participants are either constrained to a specific place and time (meaning time spent away from their daily responsibilities and not congruent to when they may need the content) or required to seek out resources as they need it (which can be burdensome and time consuming as well). This has been especially true in light of the COVID pandemic where time constraints and burden in finding content has heightened. Faculty development must evolve and change to meet the needs of the current day users. Thus, faculty developers must expand their creativity for content delivery using technology and become trained in newer technology-assisted methods. This focus session will provide opportunities for audience members to explore faculty development using new technology assisted faculty development methods. Innovations from two schools/health systems will be described, including Just in Time Training (JiTT) mobile technologies, blogs, podcasts, YouTube and email enhanced faculty development/CME.
