WORKSHOP INFORMATION

Internationally-recognized as a forum for peer-based instructional development, the Instructional Skills
Workshop is designed to strengthen instructors' skills through intensive, yet practical, exercises in
learning-centred teaching. Mixing small and large group interaction, the workshop will engage
participants in:

* planning lessons and delivering them effectively
* developing participatory instructional activities
* providing and receiving effective feedback
* creating and participating in meaningful discussions about teaching

Through the workshop, facilitators will guide constructive feedback, encouraging participants to
experiment and attempt new methods not normally used in their discipline. Video will be used to provide
an individualized record of progress and participants will be actively engaged in the feedback process. A
unique and rewarding experience, the ISW not only builds skills and confidence, but also enables
participants to learn from and foster partnerships with colleagues from other disciplines

Participants who successfully complete the 3-day program will receive a Certificate of Completion that
may be applied as credit to the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program.
