Below are testimonials from faculty members who have participated in the H.E.L.P. program:

"H.E.L.P. is valuable to all, regardless of their level of experience." – Assistant Professor, University of New England College of Pharmacy

"I would strongly recommend H.E.L.P. to any new faculty to help them get the best start possible, and to anyone else who wants to improve their teaching." – Associate Professor, Northeastern University School of Pharmacy

"I would absolutely recommend H.E.L.P. By tying the entire experience to an existing lesson, you really get to apply everything immediately and watch the transformation happen. Although you are only changing one lesson you're learning skills that you will find yourself applying in lots of other places. It was a supportive environment, and it was easy to squeeze into a busy schedule." – Assistant Professor, Samford University

"I joined the H.E.L.P. program because I knew it was time for a refresher in contemporary learning styles and educational techniques. I really needed to learn more about active learning and how to use some of the new “non-lecture” based media for learning. My only concern about the program was accomplishing the modules on time (it was a busy period for me), but I managed to complete it with no problem! This is a great program and I highly recommend it to any faculty!" – Associate Professor, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences

"I think H.E.L.P. gave me a better impression of how others teach and that I was not alone in my philosophy. I think it also gave me some confidence in that I don't always have to be a facilitator – that sometimes I can be in more of an “authoritarian” role – and that when I choose to be a facilitator, I should do it in a way that has pedagogical purpose and not just for the sake of being interactive. I also really improved on focusing on learning objectives and outcomes to provide focus and organization to the things that I teach." – Associate Professor, University of Wyoming
