The Instructional Skills Workshop: A Missed Opportunity in the UK?
Foxe, John Paul; Frake-Mistak, Mandy; Popovic, Celia
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v54 n2 p135-142 2017
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is a Canadian response to the challenge of ensuring university and college teachers have appropriate instructional skills. The programme is particularly successful in engaging teachers to enhance their stance towards student-centred teaching. This article explains the benefits of the ISW and explores possible reasons why despite proving popular in over 60 countries, it has not as yet been taken up in the UK. The authors conclude with a suggestion that the ISW could be a valuable addition to the UK approach of PG Certs and HEA accreditation.
