Want to improve your teaching skills and assessment methods? Curious about how to develop a learning outcome or an in-class assessment? Currently teaching at UWI as a graduate student, tutor or part-time instructor? Want to connect with others teaching at UWI? Then it sounds like the Instructional Skills Workshop is for you!!

The Instructional Skills Workshop or ISW is designed to provide a framework for planning and delivering lessons and a foundation for growing as a professional educator. It also provides a forum for participants to deliver lessons to their peers and receive feedback in a variety of formats. This workshop is open to all UWI employees and graduate students who have teaching responsibilities

The workshop is highly interactive and requires that the participant complete ‘homework’ between sessions.
At the end of the workshop, the participant will have:
• Reviewed basic ideas about teaching and learning
• Developed learning outcomes, lesson plans and assessment strategies
• Explored instructional strategies, feedback methods and classroom assessment techniques
• Designed, developed and delivered two-mini lessons
• Received written, oral and video feedback from peers

Note: dates for this workshop are March 8 (half day), 22 (half day) and 29th from 9 am to 4pm. To be successful in this workshop you need to attend all sessions and complete the mini lessons.
