Pearson Instructor Education (PIE) consists of targeted online faculty development that prepares a new or adjunct instructor to better manage a host of classroom and online teaching situations. Pearson recognizes that adjunct instructors are hired for their work-related content knowledge, not teaching experience. These courses, designed and written by professional educators, teach content experts to be educators. Each PIE lesson contains standard educational theory, presented in a way that is easy to understand and apply. Lesson screens are enlivened with interactivity, to-the-point scenarios, quick checks, and on-screen assignments and journaling opportunities. PIE courses are also time effective, an entire course can often be completed in one sitting, including the end-of-lesson quizzes, assignments, and final exam.
