Virtual ancillary faculty are instrumental in delivering online instruction and fostering student success across higher education institutions. Program directors should create models of support using performance outcomes and verbal persuasion to foster self-efficacy in order to help instructors avoid feelings of depersonalization that can lead to burnout.
