Explore teaching concepts, build on your existing abilities and practice new teaching approaches through face-to-face and online instruction, theory applications and peer discussion in this four-day workshop. You'll also actively practice teaching and give and receive feedback in a supportive environment. The Instructional Skills Workshop is designed for university faculty members, staff and sessional instructors to reflect on their practice and sharpen their skills.
The ISW provides participants with a structured, evidence-informed approach to planning and delivering classes.
- Sessions on key teaching and learning topics include:
- Questioning skills
- Learning outcomes
- Active learning
- Learning environment
- You will be required to teach three short lessons and give and receive constructive feedback
- Please be aware that it is important that you participate in all four half days of the face-to-face program and complete the online activities prior to each in-class session.
For more information, please visit our ISW web page.
*Participants need to attend all 4 half days of this workshop.
NOTE - Given that the TI offers formal Certificates in University Teaching and Learning for graduate students/TAs and postdoctoral scholars, this ISW is open to academic and teaching staff only. This includes sessional instructors, faculty members, and individuals in teaching roles on our campus.
