abstract

  • Attendance at faculty development events are often limited to those with time and interest, but all clinical teachers should have access to continuing faculty development. A multi-channel, asynchronous, digital faculty experience strategy (MAX FacDev) was used to engage busy emergency medicine (EM) teachers associated with a distributed medical education network involving ten geographically distinct teaching sites. An evidence-informed education bundle on key principles for clinical teaching was developed. The education bundle included five topics, serialized via: an infographic series posted in distributed medical education EM departments, a podcast series and a blog. The target audience included 102 faculty members and 46 residents. Within 8¬†months of launching MAX FacDev, there were 1508 podcast listens and 7686 pageviews. An education bundle can efficiently deliver on-demand faculty development. Amplifying key messages via multiple channels increases the reach of faculty development and reinforces the messages.
