Educators aim to transform students' knowledge, behaviors, and skills learned in the classroom to relevant situations in the real world. The rapid increasing of technology in healthcare provides a fertile ground for the implementation and evaluation of technology-based and competency driven curricula in the health professions. The technologies available to faculty are vast. These technologies include: web-based learning platforms, student response technologies, learning object creation tools, lecture capture software, e-portfolios, google glasses and computer-based simulation. This presentation will review the latest in technology-based education, provide practical guidance on the use of these technologies in learning and highlight key research in the field of simulated learning and competency assessment.
