There’s an App for That: Using Technology to Improve Teaching, Scholarship, and Wellness—Tools for Academic and Home Life!

01-31-2019 22:49

The current responsibilities of family medicine educators are at times overwhelming. A range of technological support tools exist to improve the experience or efficiency of activities common to the academic family medicine community. Specific tools and strategies can use technology to improve the delivery and efficiency of teaching, enhance academic organization and collaboration for promotion, as well as supporting personal wellness. Goals have been developed for three break-out groups, titled "Technology Tips to Improve Teaching and Engaging Learners, Technology Tips for Academic Promotion and Productivity, and Technology Tips for Communication and Balance." Each of these sessions will include interactive instruction in certain tools and strategies, as well as collecting additional tools and strategies from participants in each session. Participants are encouraged to bring their own smartphones, tablets, and laptops in order to be able to practice during the sessions. Following the three breakouts there will be an opportunity to engage in practice with new tools learned, as well as sharing of apps beneficial in clinical practice or teaching. The conclusion will include a summary of new tools and strategies discovered, as well as setting of personal goals to utilize technology in the areas covered. Participants will leave the workshop with a plan to use some of these tools to support their roles as educators and clinicians, having hands-on practice with various tools.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify and utilize technologic tools and strategies to improve their teaching delivery, such as improved presentation skills and approaches to interactive learning;
  2. Identify and utilize technologic tools to promote academic collaboration, support academic advancement and organize scholarly projects;
  3. Identify and utilize technologic tools to promote personal resilience, personal health and allow better personal and family communication.
