What is the focus of your interest group? What are your goals? Accomplishments? Future plans?

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.

In recent meetings, we introduced interactive (participatory) demos of technology to enhance teaching, learning, and collaboration workflows (for example, video conferencing for virtual office hours).  These demos have also allowed us to pilot material for the “Digital Doctor” faculty development series that the Ed Tech SIG will be creating and running over the next year.   The Digital Doctor sessions will involve medical faculty and educational technology experts as teachers to train faculty on highly relevant, easily adoptable ed tech skills. 

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.).
