May Instructional Skills Workshops for Faculty & Instructors

May 1 @ 9:00 am - May 3 @ 4:30 pm

The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is a 3-day teaching practice opportunity offered within a small group setting and is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators.

The ISW presents a framework for planning and delivering lessons, and provides a forum for participants to deliver three participatory lessons to a small group of peers and reflect on a variety of feedback. Participants will each design and deliver three 10-minute, participatory mini-lessons and provide constructive feedback on the lessons of others. Many experienced instructors use this workshop as a place for refining their ideas about education and trying out new approaches for their classes.

By completing this workshop, instructor participants will be able to:

  • Construct intended learning outcomes (ILOs)
  • Incorporate active learning strategies into lessons
  • Enhance lesson planning and delivery approaches
  • Collect and utilize feedback from learners about lesson delivery
  • Provide valuable and constructive feedback on others’ lessons

In fulfilling the time and participation requirements of the ISW, you will earn an internationally-recognized Instructional Skills Workshop certificate.

Tuesday, May 1st
