DSCF8710PATH Intl. faculty are experienced and practicing professionals with the capability of effectively promoting learning within individual courses and programs. Our faculty all have significant experience in fields related to the courses they facilitate. They are selected through an assessment process and then are oriented to mission and organizational structure of PATH Intl.

PATH Intl. faculty are carefully assessed and selected for teaching ability. Minimum qualifications are listed below.

All PATH Intl. faculty are required to meet or exceed minimum requirements to achieve faculty status. These include, but are not limited to:

• Recent, substantive and relevant experience that combines theory and practice

• Awareness of and respect for adult learning theory and practice

• Participation in and successful completion of a faculty assessment

• Completion of formal PATH Intl. faculty training

The following documents are the result of the work done by the PATH Intl. Faculty Development Task Force over the past couple of years. The goal of the task force has been to clarify and standardize PATH Intl. faculty processes and procedures among all disciplines and to improve the overall quality of education provided by ensuring that all PATH Intl. faculty exhibit excellence.
