Instructional Skills Workshop

The ISW is a four day/28 hour boot camp for your teaching. Whether you are just starting your teaching career or have been teaching for decades and want to try something new, this peer-facilitated workshop will help you

  • identify and build on your existing strengths
  • develop new skills and techniques
  • create an interdisciplinary cohort of peers who love teaching as much as you do

And all of it takes place in a confidential, supportive environment! First developed in British Columbia in the late 1970s, the ISW is now used at universities and colleges across Canada as an important component of their faculty development programs. Since 2011 more than 25 U of L faculty members from many different departments and faculties have completed the ISW.
