April 25 - 28, 2017
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is offered to a group of five or six colleagues and is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators. During the 3 ½ day workshop, participants design and conduct three "mini-lessons" and receive verbal, written and video feedback from the other 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 adult learners, the selection and writing of useful learning objectives with accompanying lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation, and suggestions for evaluation of learning.
The workshop encourages reflection and examination of one's teaching practices with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on the specific content of the lesson. All 3 ½ days attendance is expected.
The workshop will take place at: The University of the Fraser Valley 33844 King Rd. Abbotsford, BC V2S 7M8
