Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In). This session is held in a large ballroom with two sessions happening at opposite ends of the room. (Area 3A)

In autumn of 2015, 16 senior administrators from China with responsibility for vocational education visited BCIT to learn more about the teaching of applied skills in Canada. Three BCIT Instructional Development Consultants (Loretta Teng, Youdan Zhang and Mary Wilson) designed and co-facilitated a four-day Applied Teaching Workshop for them. As experienced Instructional Skills Workshop facilitators, we designed a single-mini-lesson version of the ISW, with an expanded focus on the principles of learner-centred instruction and educational philosophy.

We think this Applied Teaching Workshop format could be effective for administrators (deans, directors, etc.) in post-secondary education and for Human Resources personnel who provide feedback to staff or trainees. We would like to engage those attending our session in a round-table discussion exploring ideas for adapting the ISW for educational administrators (from Canada or elsewhere) and for other educational/learning situations.
