The distribution of faculty development in new and innovative formats is important for meeting the needs of faculty members and health professionals. This does not mean simply changing old content to a new format. Without careful planning, the use of technology can fail to achieve desired faculty learning outcomes-or worse, become a deterrent to faculty using these technologies. There are several new innovations in faculty development that are surfacing to mitigate some of these issues. They center around modalities and just-in-time tools that put the resources in the hands of educators and foster their lifelong learning mentality of medicine in a format that is more versatile and accessible. With the right planning, interactivity, exposures, and goals, these new methods for faculty development can lead to greater improvement in physician performance and patient outcomes. This workshop 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, YouTube, and email enhanced faculty development/CME.
