  • Who should attend

    The ISW Program provides new and experienced instructors with a laboratory approach for teaching improvement combining skills enhancement and personal renewal. The Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW) is designed primarily for individuals who will be conducting the ISW at an institution. It is recommended that individuals participate in an ISW prior to applying for the FDW. The FDW provides individuals with an opportunity for professional development in a challenging and supportive atmosphere and provides connections to a larger instructional development network. Participants need to register through their Institutional ISW Contact Person (contact Janice Johnson (janice.johnson@ufv.ca) if there is no ISW Contact Person at your institution).

    What you will learn

    ISW activities form the nucleus of the FDW. ISW participants refine teaching techniques through the mini-lessons and, with guided practice and feedback, develop strategies for facilitating the group process central to the ISW method. As with the ISW, the FDW is a peer-based model providing participants with a small group setting in which to work on facilitation skills. The small groups meet in plenary sessions each day featuring such themes as: diverse learners, collaborative learning, and feedback models.

    Who are the trainers

    Facilitators/Trainers in the ISW Network will serve as members of the training team. The number of small groups will depend on the number of registrants and the availability of ISW trainers. Early registration is requested so that we can confirm the training team.
