Medical education has increasingly moved online, not only with increased use of teaching on videoconferencing platforms, but also with teaching via social media, blogs, podcasts, and streaming videos. This faculty development course is designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of digital education, as well as the practical technical skills necessary to succeed as a digital educator in the 21st century. It is targeted at fellows, early career, and senior faculty. No prior knowledge of digital education is necessary.

This 10-session course will be offered during the 2023-2024 academic year beginning in October 2023. Sessions will take on the second Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:00 PM in person to allow for interactive small group discussions and multidisciplinary collaboration. Sessions will focus on both theoretical aspects of digital education, including adult learning theory, as well as practical aspects, including technical skills sessions, instructional design, curriculum development, and digital education research. Participants will create multiple digital educational products throughout the course and will receive mentorship and coaching in asynchronously producing a digital educational project such a podcast or video. A major focus of the course will be transforming daily teaching into digital education and using this for career development and academic promotion. Participants will have the opportunity to network and collaborate with educators across multiple specialties at the medical center, as well as national experts in digital education virtually during sessions.
