Institution: ISW Network

ISW Work Bee June 7-10, 2020

Calling all ISW facilitators and FDW trainers who wish to roll up their sleeves and work on projects related to supporting the ISW Network!

From Sunday June 7th (late afternoon) to Wednesday June 10th at noon, facilitators and trainers are invited to gather at Edenvale Retreat Centre in Abbotsford, British Columbia (near Vancouver) to collaborate with other members of the ISW Network in an informal collegial environment. As the Network grows, within Canada and globally, there is pressing need for more developed resources that can support facilitators and trainers. Given that many hands make light work, this event provides an opportunity for networking, brainstorming, collaborating and realizing some of our
shared goals. Time and energy will be devoted to

  • collaborating on projects/materials that support the Network;
  • writing sessions to create resources/materials;
  • networking to develop potential inter-institutional activities or events; and
  • getting feedback from colleagues on planned resources or events

ISW community members are invited to propose ideas for the Work Bee to meet Network needs: examples of proposed projects include designing supplementary resources for both the ISW and FDW Handbook; reimagining ISW institutes and creating needed supporting documents; and developing a tool kit for new facilitators. As in all institutes, there will be time for sharing ISW experiences, strategies and insights.
