Professional development for the seasoned expert and beginner…
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) program is a comprehensive three-tiered teacher and trainer development program that serves as the foundation for several professional development activities The ISW typically is facilitated by two ISW Facilitators [See Instructional Skills Workshop Facilitator Training].
The ISW is offered within a small group setting and is designed to enhance the classroom effectiveness of both new and experienced teachers or trainers. During the four-day workshop that is facilitated by two ISW Facilitators, approximately five teachers or trainers design and conduct three “mini-lessons” and receive oral, written and video feedback from the participants who have been learners in the mini-lessons. Using an intensive experiential learning approach, participants are provided with information on the theory and practice of teaching or training adult learners, the selection and writing of Intended Learning Outcomes with accompanying lesson plans, techniques for eliciting learner participation, and suggestions for evaluation of learning.
The ISW encourages reflection and examination of one’s teaching/training practices with feedback focused on the learning process rather than on the specific content of the lesson. Effective feedback skills, practiced in the workshop, are useful for classroom teachers or trainers and also as they fulfill their other organizational tasks.
The ISW engenders participatory learning and the building of community that can transfer back into the classroom and the school, college, university, or organizational setting. Participation in an ISW creates an opportunity for new teachers or trainers to learn about the unique culture and value system of the organization and can also be a renewing and revitalizing activity for more seasoned teachers or trainers. Added benefits are a sense of collegiality, team building, self discovery, and learning new approaches to working with others.
