  1. Discuss current conceptions of faculty development
  2. Explore the relationship between faculty development & educational change
  3. Consider new ways of imagining how faculty development can support educational change


Most of us who teach in the health professions have experiences with faculty development designed to support our teaching. As an accreditation standard, these programs have become common place. While the literature is clear that faculty development programs play an important role in supporting teaching faculty, what is not clear is how these programs are intersecting and influencing educational change at the individual and curricular level. In this WITA, we will share our own stories and experiences as educators and faculty developers, and offer some perspectives on what might be its unique role in influencing and inspiring change.
