“Northwell Health’s Office of Academic Affairs announced that it has launched its Just in Time Teaching Tools app to aid in the advancement of medical education knowledge and teaching skills of students, trainees and faculty. The app is now available in the Apple Store and in Google Play.
 
The new App uses the Just-in-time teaching (JiTT) model – a pedagogical approach that involves close interaction between instructors and their classrooms – to better provide timely and relevant teaching tips to trainees and faculty who need to actively engage with their instructors, specifically for those in the patient care setting.
 
‘The Just in Time Teaching Tools App allows for a more robust teaching and learning environment for everyone in the classroom,’ said the app’s developer, Alice Fornari, EdD, RDN, the associate dean of educational skills development at Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and vice president of faculty development at Northwell. ‘The use of technology-enhanced learning platforms are feasible and accessible to learners across the continuum of medical education and are especially useful in geographically dispersed academic health systems. This new App makes that model even stronger.'”
