Workshop Overview: This 3-day workshop, which focuses on teaching groups of students, is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators. In a supportive atmosphere, you will have a chance to try new teaching approaches and to sharpen existing skills. During the workshop, you will design and conduct three “mini-lessons” and receive verbal, written and video feedback from your peers. In addition, you will reflect on your own teaching practices. The success of this program relies on the active participation and collaboration of all participants who, as a team, work together to support each other in enhancing their teaching effectiveness. In addition to our face-to-face time during the workshop, participants should allocate about an hour before the workshop and during the evenings of the workshop for some online activities. A certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant.

Additional information on the Faculty ISW can be found online here.
