Summary: This study evaluated what teaching technologies are considered important in medical education by teaching faculty members and to determine the degree of faculty’s confidence and interest in different available educational technologies.
Description: Today’s educators are faced with both new challenges and new information technologies for teaching medical trainees; however, there is no consensus on the technology skills that faculty members need for teaching, and we found no information on faculty’s confidence in their use of technology in medical education. The aim of the study was to evaluate what teaching technologies are considered important in medical education by teaching faculty members and to determine the degree of faculty’s confidence and interest in different available educational technologies. A 10 question electronic survey was developed by the authors and distributed to 795 faculty members. The goals were to assess the degree of confidence and perceived relevance and interest in different teaching technologies among the faculty.
