On October 10, 11 & 12, 2012, the LTO staff and associates facilitated an Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) for faculty and instructors. We had a wonderful group, and we were able to exchange many ideas and best practices related to teaching and learning.
The Instructional Skills Workshop is offered within a small group setting (max. 10 participants) and is designed to enhance the teaching effectiveness of both new and experienced educators. Read more about the ISW
The group discussed various topics on:
- Effective teaching

- Teaching strategies and activities in large classes and small classes, in addition to activities to promote reflection in the classroom
