Just forwarding the announcement about more Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) available to students in the fall!
This is a GREAT experience and comes highly recommended by many current and past LFS TAs. I absolutely loved this workshop and felt it was applicable to my teaching skills.
Please let us know if you are interested in participating in an ISW this fall, as soon as possible. We are able to fund the cost of a few students each term, but the spots fill up quick!

Subject: Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) September 10, 16 & 17, 2023 application opens July 28!
Please forward the following information to your graduate students:
The Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) will be offering a Graduate Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) on September 10, 16 & 17, 2023.
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 face-to-face 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 September 10, 16 & 17, 2023 ISW please click here: https://events.ctlt.ubc.ca/events/graduate-instructional-skills-workshop-september-10-16-17-2023-preliminary-application/
Application opens on July 28 at 9 am and closes on September 6, 2023 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: http://ctlt.ubc.ca/gradisw
