New study by Faculty of Education Researchers – largest to date on impact of Instructional Skills Workshop

More than 100 institutions worldwide have offered the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) over the last 30 years to develop more student-centred, reflective instructors, but relatively little research has been conducted on its impact. According to a new study from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario, the largest to date on the ISW, workshop participants report an increased focus on student needs, engagement and feedback.

Authors of The Impact of the Instructional Skills Workshop on Faculty Approaches to Teaching are Debra Dawson, Ken Meadows, Karyn Olsen and Gayle McIntyre, Western University’s Centre for Research on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education at the Faculty of Education; and Paola Borin and Judy Britnell, Ryerson University.
