Goals and Achievements:
The Academy’s Educational Technology Special Interest Group is focused on fostering faculty awareness of and expertise in use of available educational technology resources. As part of this process, we hope to develop a community for discussing and sharing ed tech related advances in teaching and learning. Members share updates on their uses of technology in teaching and discuss best practices, and great examples make their way into future workshops or the Academy Insights newsletter.
Highlights over the last year interactive, participatory demonstrations of software applications to enhance teaching, learning, and collaboration workflows and use of video for flipped classroom teaching.Over the next year we plan to work closely with other interest groups and faculty to help them leverage and navigate the changing technology landscape at HMS e.g. the new HMS curriculum MyCourses redesign, Curriculum Map, new classroom technologies, as well as online HMS courses and CME opportunities offered beyond the Harvard community.
The Ed Tech SIG also guides HMS in how to best help faculty navigate the changing technology landscape at HMS (e.g. MyCourses re-design, Curriculum Map, new classroom technologies, etc.).
