ISW Around the World

A very successful professional development initiative for educators, the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) was created in British Columbia, Canada in 1979. Since then, hundreds of educators have served as ISW Facilitators offering ISWs in colleges, institutes, universities, polytechnics, hospitals, government departments, non-profits, and training organizations around the world.

In some areas, all three tiers of the ISW program are offered, namely Instructional Skills Workshops (ISWs), Facilitator Development Workshops (FDWs) and Trainer Development Workshops (TDWs). In other areas, the ISW has been offered, but an ongoing program (with trained ISW Facilitators and FDW Trainers) has not yet been established.

Although the ISW has been offered in many countries, it is not necessarily currently offered in each place listed above.

We are continuing to collect information on ISW offerings around the world.

If you are an ISW Facilitator or FDW Trainer who has offered an ISW or FDW at an institution or organization that is new to the ISW Network, please contact us to add this information to our global ISW database.
