The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) Program is a comprehensive instructor development program. The Instructional Skills Workshop is offered within a small group setting and is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness and confidence of both new and experienced educators. During the 3-day (24-hour) workshop, participants design and conduct three short lessons and receive verbal, written and video feedback from the other participants who have been learners in the short lessons. Research completed for the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario has demonstrated the significant impact of participation in the ISW on taking more learner-centred approaches to instruction.
Using an intensive experiential learning approach, participants are provided with information on the theory and practice of teaching adult learners, the selection and writing of useful learning outcomes with accompanying lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation (including technology and large classes) and suggestions for evaluation of learning. The workshop encourages reflection and examination of one's teaching practices with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on the specific content of the lesson. Effective feedback skills, practiced in the workshop, are useful for educators in the classroom and also as they conduct their regular institutional business.
Staff, faculty, post-doc, graduate students and sessional instructors interested in teaching and learning.
