Instructor Training Workshop - Registration is Full

Put your experience and education to good use
Take the next career step – become an IAAO Instructor!

August 26-28, 2016 - Tampa Convention Center

The Instructor Training Workshop (ITW) is an intensive 3-day interactive workshop. The ITW is not intended to teach individuals how to instruct, but rather to evaluate participants’ ability to teach IAAO material in a classroom setting. The ITW is an arduous undertaking, strenuously evaluated by a panel of IAAO senior instructors. There is no established “pass rate” for this workshop which has ranged from 50% to 77% over the last three years.

During this 3-day workshop, students learn about IAAO education delivery, adult education, effective communication, and IAAO curriculum. Each student is expected to understand the general subject matter and specific course material, spend at least 10 hours in advance preparation, prepare short practice presentations, and prepare one final ten-minute presentation. Students demonstrate (and are evaluated on) their teaching style, classroom presence, familiarity and comprehension of the course material, organization of subject matter, clarity and accuracy of their classroom presentation.

Who Should Attend?

  • IAAO members who wish to become IAAO instructors
  • IAAO members interested in assessor education

The ITW is open to anyone who is an IAAO member in good standing. All requirements for prospective and current instructors are outlined in the Instructor’s Handbook available on the IAAO web site. Participants must download and read the handbook prior to attending the ITW and also bring it to the ITW.
