Instructional Skills Workshops

The ISW is a fun, intensive, interactive, four-day/28 hour workshop for new and experienced teachers. The workshop is peer-facilitated and peer-driven, designed to help you:

  • identify and build on your existing strengths as a teacher
  • develop new skills and techniques for student-focused and active-learning pedagogy
  • create an interdisciplinary cohort of peers who are as passionate about teaching as you are

The ISW was developed more than 30 years ago by post-secondary instructors in British Columbia and it is now an internationally-recognized professional development program.
