Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW, CTE6600)

The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is an intensive, collaborative, and experiential learning model that uses videotaped micro-teaching and peer feedback sessions to support the teaching reflection and growth of both new and experienced instructors. The ISW promotes participatory learning and community building and encourages examination of teaching practices with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on the specific content of the lesson. Each participant will receive a widely-recognized certificate of achievement upon successful completion of the ISW, which requires 24 contact hours, over three or four days.
