Teaching Skills Workshop (TSW)

The TSW is an 18-hour course for instructional improvement, which is based on the concept of micro-teaching. Micro-teaching is a process by which teachers can learn by giving very short lessons to other teachers and receiving feedback on the basic skills demonstrated in those lessons. Each participant presents a series of 15-minute presentations. 
The chance to practice teaching, along with the feedback provided by the group, allows even experienced instructors to learn from what they do every day. The workshops are offered on weekends so that those who work during the week will be able to attend. Course sessions run for six hours a day for three days during the fall semester.
