Facilitator Development Workshop (FDW)

The Facilitator Development Workshop, or FDW, is a five-day training event to prepare experienced university teachers to lead the Instructional Skills Workshop. The activities of the ISW form the nucleus of the FDW. As in the ISW, participants will continue to refine their teaching techniques through the mini-lessons, and with guided practice and feedback, develop strategies for facilitating the group process. Participants have the opportunity to develop new knowledge and techniques for facilitating group development, to explore other teaching methods, to explore formative evaluation techniques, and to receive feedback on their own teaching and facilitating skills. The FDW provides an opportunity for individuals to concentrate on their own professional development in a challenging and supportive atmosphere.

A certificate will be issued upon completion that is recognized at most Canadian and international postsecondary institutions. ** Please kindly note: this is a 5-day workshop intended for participants to attend the entire workshop (all five days from 9:00am-5:00pm). Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
