About the Instructional Skills Workshop

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
