The TFS Faculty Development Program Is
the New On-ramp for Institutions that Wish to
Engage More Instructors in
Transformative Teaching Improvement
and Appreciation of Student Success Issues

It Enables Institutions to Help Faculty,
Particularly SME and Adjunct Instructors, Apply
Transformative Teaching Success Factors, to Instructional Improvement
and Ensuring Greater Student Success

Why TFS?
Students are more diverse, demanding, and more needful than ever.
They quickly drop classes or disengage from learning
when instructors fail to meet their needs
or if the class fails to meet their learning expectations.

TFS specializes in mentoring Subject Matter Expert and Adjunct Instructors, who have not formally studied the nature of adult education, in the principles of teaching for success based on findings from cognitive science, adult learning, psychology, and best teaching practices.

Today, it is not enough for adjuncts to know their subject thoroughly. If adjuncts are to successfully serve institutions and retain students, they must have high-quality people skills and excellent instructional design and delivery smarts. For the noneducational major adjuncts, Teaching For Success unpacks and explains the value of these two must-know skill sets of higher education teaching. It translates learned-experience into easy-to-understand nuggets of best thinking and best practice.

TFS is designed to meet the particular needs of faculty who have not studied higher education and pedagogy. It will resonate particularly with faculty who are goal setters and high achievers. These faculty will love and resonate with TFS.

With TFS, your instructors can select and engage with resources of need and personal interest. You will give them a 1,600-page e-library of crucial teaching skills, strategies, and solutions. Best of all, adjuncts can learn teaching skills without having to slog through often off-putting and often boring theoretical discussions.

TFS is designed to energize and engage faculty who care and are committed to teaching excellence.

Below Are Some of the Serious-About-Success Institutions Choosing TFS
TFS is all about student success—boost learning and completion.

Working as Department Chair, I was amazed to discover a significant proportion of the adjunct faculty in my department had not learned the essentials. They just taught the way they were taught—for good or bad. Many students became disappointed and quit. So I decided to do something about it. Now I want to help you reach and engage students in completing courses. After all, why should students pay the price of poor teaching?

That is why I created the Teaching For Success Program. It's designed to help your faculty succeed by giving you the tools to help them improve their skills. Click the arrow below to enjoy the TFS Program Introductory Video.

A TFS Story…

The information provided is so on target. I can relate to each comment. It seems that I have misplaced my focus and have, perhaps, forgotten why I wanted to teach. It became a chore because I was more concerned about errors, instead of my purpose and how it may impact students.

Upon reading this information, I realized that I have a lot to learn about my delivery and my students. They have become disruptive and defiant. I wondered about how to get them back on track, but I had no resolution.

Your [TFS] teaching tools are a life saver. I don't know if you remember, I was worried about losing my job and my students were threatening to go to the Dean.

Look at me, now. I have found what my students need from me. They are benefiting from your Program and from what I've learned through you. I love my students, and they are just awesome. Thank you so much for your guidance and information.
