Course details

​NOTE: All registrants must first contact develop@bcit.ca. The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) takes a highly participatory approach as groups examine their values and practices related to teaching or training and learning. It may be conducted in a variety of formats (face to face, blended, or online). Usually participants (a group of about four to six) work with one or two facilitators, although several groups may be meeting concurrently and may interact periodically. During the workshop, participants are encouraged to review core ideas about teaching and learning, reflect on current practices, and try new instructional strategies, techniques, and approaches within a respectful and supportive environment. Using lesson planning models for learning outcomes and/or expressive outcomes, participants offer short lessons to each other in a small group setting (guided practice). Feedback on lessons is provided verbally, in writing, and by means of video recording. Workshop facilitators also offer sessions that explore topics related to teaching and learning. ​​• The ISW uses a developmental peer-based approach. • The ISW encourages active, experiential learning and is based on principles of learning-centred instruction. • The ISW raises the awareness of, appreciation of, and sensitivity to the many individual differences— visible and invisible— learners bring to any learning environment. ​
