Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW)

The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) program is a comprehensive three-tiered teacher and trainer development program that serves as the foundation for several professional development activities. The ISW is offered within a small group setting and is designed to enhance the classroom effectiveness of both new and experienced teachers or trainers. During the four-day workshop, approximately five teachers or trainers design and conduct three “mini-lessons” and receive oral, written and video feedback from the participants who have been learners in the mini-lessons. Using an intensive experiential learning approach, participants are provided with information on the theory and practice of teaching or training adult learners, the selection and writing of Intended Learning Outcomes with accompanying lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation, and suggestions for evaluation of learning.

Instructional Skills Workshop Facilitator Training

The activities of the Instructional Skills Workshop form the nucleus of the ISW Facilitator Training, a five-day workshop to prepare experienced faculty to facilitate the Instructional Skills Workshops. Participants refine their teaching techniques through the mini-lessons, and with guided practice and feedback, develop strategies for facilitating the group process. Participants have the opportunity to develop new knowledge and techniques for facilitating group development, to explore other teaching methods, to explore formative evaluation techniques, and to receive feedback on their own teaching and facilitating skills. Some chairpersons participate in the Facilitator Training to enhance their competence in providing constructive feedback for their teaching colleagues. The Facilitator Training provides an opportunity for individuals to concentrate on their own professional development in a challenging and supportive atmosphere. Participants can become part of a larger instructional development network. Learn More>>
