Instructional Skills Workshop

The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is an internationally recognized forum for faculty members, staff and graduate students in instructional roles who wish to strengthen their teaching skills. It is designed to strengthen novice to expert instructors’ skills through intensive yet practical exercises in learning-centred teaching.

NOTE: Space in the ISW program is limited. If you are admitted, a $75 deposit will be required to confirm your registration. The deposit will be refunded upon successful completion of the full three-day workshop.

Additional information

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, participants in the workshop will:

  • Plan and deliver structured and engaging lessons
  • Discover new participatory learning activities
  • Provide and receive feedback about your own and others’ teaching
  • Participate in meaningful discussions about teaching
