Health Science education faculty are redesigning curricula to meet the learning needs of current and future students. During this process, faculty adjust their teaching strategies, and work to increase their own educational technology skills. The evolving demands of a health care educator underscores the need to nurture their technology skills development. The method UNMC chose to use was to develop an interprofessional community of support that is designed to strengthen an innovative culture, foster informal peer review and peer mentoring, encourage scholarship opportunities, and to offer collaborations with educators who share an interest in using technology in education. The community identified critical supports for the adoption of technology innovation and this poster will illustrate methods used to create, grow, and sustain the community of support.
