Instructor / Faculty Training & Development

At Vaughan Advanced Learning Consulting, we value helping college instructors and faculty provide the appropriate level of rigor and support that is key to creating learning environments where students can succeed at the college level and beyond. Unfortunately, many instructors and/or faculty have not received formal training in pedagogy. These circumstances coupled with increasing populations of students who are at a greater need (e.g., first-generation students, students of color, conditionally admitted students, etc.) lead to a critical requirement for effective training and professional development.
