The Faculty of Engineering’s Faculty Development Academy has partnered with The MacPherson Institute to offer the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) in a small group setting within the Faculty of Engineering. This engaging, evidence-based workshop is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators.

Overview

Facilitators:  Julia Evanovitch, Educational Developer and Alyson Brown, Research Coordinator from the MacPherson Institute

Please note that this three-day workshop is taking place from Tuesday, July 24th to Thursday, July 26th; 8:30am - 4:30pm each day.  Participants are required to attend all three days to successfully complete the program.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Construct intended learning outcomes (ILOs)
  • Incorporate active learning strategies into lessons
  • Enhance lesson planning and delivery approaches
  • Collect and utilize feedback from learners about lesson delivery
  • Provide valuable and constructive feedback on others’ lessons

The ISW presents a framework for planning and delivering lessons, and provides a forum for participants to deliver three participatory lessons to a small group of peers and reflect on a variety of feedback. Participants will each design and deliver three 10-minute, participatory mini-lessons and provide constructive feedback on the lessons of others. Many experienced instructors use this workshop as a place for refining their ideas about education and trying out new approach to their classes.

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

Who should attend?           All faculty members
