In this workshop, facilitators will provide constructive feedback and encourage participants to experiment and attempt new methods not normally used in their discipline. Video will be used to provide an individualized record of progress, and participants will be actively engaged in the feedback process. A unique and rewarding experience, the ISW not only builds skills and confidence, but also enables participants to learn from and foster partnerships with colleagues from other disciplines.

Participants who successfully complete the three-day program will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be applied as credit to the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program.


Mixing small and large group interaction, the workshop will engage participants in:

  • Planning lessons and delivering them effectively
  • Developing participatory learning activities
  • Providing and receiving effective feedback
  • Creating and participating in meaningful discussions about teaching
