The changing landscape of medical education results in the continuous evolution of educators beyond simply being content experts. In order to meet the needs of the new generation of learners, educators must be innovative and tech savvy. This symposium will showcase various strategies used to enhance student learning both in and outside the classroom. Speakers will present educational tools developed for the mastery of difficult pharmacology content; apps that can be used for “just-in-time teaching”; iBooks and ePubs for interactive self-study learning; and tools for interactive audience participation. Participants will experience these tools through brief interactive demonstrations.
