The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW)
is for faculty and instructional staff interested in developing or improving
their teaching and learning processes. This intensive multi‐day workshop can
accommodate a maximum of six participants. The spring 2022 ISW will be
delivered in an online format. Full participation in all sessions is required. In
this online workshop, participants will review ideas about
teaching, check current practices and, within a safe and supportive
environment, deliver three short lessons. In addition, participants will find
new ways to reach their learners and they will receive peer feedback that will
assist with instructional development. Also beneficial are the supportive
relationships that can grow between participants. We look forward to sharing
this enriching workshop with you. Overall purposes of the course:
1. To work in
a collegial, peer-based instructional process on methods of teaching actively,
experientially, interactively, and in a participatory manner.
2. To foster a
safe educational laboratory environment in which instructors have the
opportunity to conduct individual experiments on their teaching practices.
To give instructors the opportunity to develop a strong campus-based support
system so they can continue to get peer feedback on their teaching over time.
This course is the equivalent of ID3220 of the BC Provincial Instructor Diploma
Program (PIDP) and your Letter of Completion from fully participating in this
workshop satisfies the required credits for that course in the PIDP program.
