Instructional Skills Workshop for Faculty and Instructors
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators. Participants review basic ideas about teaching, check current practices, and try new strategies and techniques. During the 3-day workshop, participants design and conduct three “mini-lessons” and receive verbal, written and video feedback from other workshop participants.

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