Graduate ISW for LFS TAs!



We still have *two spots left* LFS graduate students to take the Instructional Skills Workshop this year. These spots are subsidized through the LFS Training Program.

If you’re interested in attending, please email your TA Coordinators ( and Details about upcoming ISWs are below.


The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) will be offering a Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) on May 25, June 1 & 2, 2024.

The Grad ISW is a 24-hour, fully participatory, and peer-based professional development workshop for graduate students that is beneficial to both new and experienced instructors.

Please note: You must attend all sessions and complete all independent work for the complete duration of the workshop, (i.e. the entire 24-hour workshop).

To apply for the waitlist for May 25, June 1 & 2, 2024 ISW click here:

Application opens on April 12 at 9 am and closes on May 22  at 4:30 pm. By clicking this link, you are applying for the WAITLIST only and this DOES NOT register you for the workshop. Graduate ISWs at UBC are in high demand. To create an equitable registration process all graduate students who apply for an ISW will first be enrolled on a waitlist, from which participants are randomly selected. If a participant has applied for more than one ISW waitlist, their name will appear more frequently when generating the participant list, giving them a higher chance of being selected for an ISW. If you are accepted into the workshop, you will be contacted by our office to confirm your registration. For more information and a list of all upcoming sessions visit:
