Literature regarding faculty development in uniprofessional healthcare programs is prolific; however, little has been written about instructional programs designed for faculty delivering interprofessional education (IPE). In this paper, we describe the genesis, content, and improvement of a faculty development workshop which exemplifies a meta teaching model and was designed to serve faculty facilitators in a rapidly growing IPE program. Evaluations following initial delivery of the workshops in fall 2018 returned high faculty satisfaction ratings and feedback suggesting a need for even more pedagogical training with a stronger emphasis on meta techniques and less on a review of student content. In response, program developers incorporated additional teaching techniques in the spring 2019 training. Faculty evaluations in spring 2019 reflected even greater satisfaction with the increased focus on “meta skills”. The faculty development program described in this paper supports the need for a structured training process for faculty facilitating in IPE programs.
