Objective: This study aimed to reveal faculty members' impressions of the effectiveness of a sustainable professional development model derived from accelerated learning principles.

Research design: This study used descriptive and analytical approaches to collect data through a questionnaire directed to a study sample of 55 members from the Faculty of Education at a private university in Pakistan. In this study, we used evocative statistics to describe frequency ratio, mean, and standard deviations. Cronbach's alpha coefficient, Pearson correlation coefficient, Independent-Samples T-Test, and One-Way Analysis of Variance ANOVA were used.

Results: The study results indicate a consensus about the effectiveness of the model applied at the institutional and individual levels, and there are no statistically significant differences in impression due to gender, age, work experience, or academic degree.

Conclusion: Examining the applied model for professional development, which is based on accelerated learning principles, showed that investing in information and communication technology was effective within the study's limits. However, as the

effectiveness of any application is related to its context; researchers should conduct more research to evaluate all dimensions of the professional development model in different contexts and enrich the educational research library with more professional development studies and models for applying accelerated learning principles
