ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University hosted an instructional skills facilitator development workshop last week.
NSU faculty members Kristi Bockorny, Greg Francom, Jeff Howard, Jim Kennedy, Stan Vinson, and Tim Woods attended the workshop conducted by Pat Pattison and Desiree Mou, certified instructional skills trainers from British Columbia.
The five-day facilitator development workshop prepares experienced faculty to lead instructional skills workshops. Participants have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and technique in facilitating groups, as well as to examine and explore their own teaching methods. The workshop enhances each participant’s ability to support colleagues.
NSU’s facilitators will use the skills they have learned to conduct instructional skills workshop training for faculty in the coming academic year.
