Theme: Being our Authentic Selves – Practicing the Art, Craft and Science of the ISW
In 2019, we are celebrating 40 years of the Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) Program and Network, now offered at places around the world. This year we return to Naramata Centre for our Spring Institute for ISW facilitators and trainers.
The Naramata Centre was the site for our residential ISW Spring Institutes for 30+ years, before this event moved to other places in British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia.
In honour of our 40th anniversary year, we have asked Jeanie Cockell and Joan McArthur-Blair, two of our ISW pioneers, to serve as lead program planners and process facilitators for this event.
The ISW Spring Institute is designed for new and experienced facilitators and trainers across the ISW network. The Institute provides participants with opportunities to share their insights and challenges and to draw on each other’s experiences and expertise within a collegial environment.
As in past years, all participants serve as resources in this community-building institute by providing ideas and suggestions within a variety of activities. We will use both small and whole group discussion and a range of presentation formats. Some activities will be pre-planned; others will evolve from an ongoing needs assessment as the event progresses. Please come prepared to share ideas, innovations, problems, philosophies and visions related to our theme and to the ISW Program and Network.
