Thompson University recently invested $500,000 for comprehensive and effective faculty training sessions, specifically developed for the university’s faculty members in order to train them in the latest technological trends and to enhance their online teaching capabilities. The sessions are said to prepare faculty and staff to recognize and address the challenges that students face during their course of learning.
Led by an international team of educationist and professionals, the management of Thompson University has crafted a series of online workshops and interactive training sessions which will now be held quarterly and made mandatory for all instructors affiliated with the institution.
This is not the first time that Thompson University has organized faculty training sessions, as Kevin Montini, faculty member at Thompson’s Business School proclaimed, “It is critical that higher education institutions create conditions for students that allow them to thrive academically. Thompson University has always laid emphasis on training its online faculty members and as teachers, we feel proud of this initiative. It only goes to show that the organization cares about the standards it portrays. I attended the sessions last year with my fellow faculty members and we are looking forward to attending this year’s training sessions as well.”
Jeffery M. Blair, Public Relations Director at Thompson University stated, “Thompson University continuously strives to educate its faculty members with new concepts that they can incorporate to support not only their own progress but also that of their students. Our main priority is to employ and evaluate the best online instructors from every part of the world for its students. Faculty training sessions actually aim to give more room to online faculty members to improve.”
Faculty at Thompson University has been helping improve the excellence and flexibility of the courses. Professor Ronald S. Newman of Thompson University appreciated the initiative, “We are sure that the training sessions we will be going through, will definitely bring something new to every online instructor at Thompson University.”

A global name in online education, Thompson is constantly working to combine its promise of bringing quality education and expert teaching faculty on a single platform.
