‘Going virtual’: Innovative online faculty development during COVID‑19

R Maart, A Rhoda, S Titus, D Manning

Abstract


The 18-month SAFRI fellowship programme is aimed at developing African health professions educators as leaders, teachers, scholars and advocates for change. Included in the last session of the programme was an opportunity for fellows to develop and host face-to-face faculty development workshops. In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic forced a change that required offering these workshops as online learning activities.
