Why do you mention “workshop facilitation” and not “teaching”?

“Teaching” implies that knowledge is being transferred in one direction: teacher to student. However, ITSA truly believes that the workshops are a learning experience for not only the participants but our fellows as well. As they “facilitate” a workshop, ITSA hopes our interns will challenge their own thoughts and assumptions just as much as they challenge the participants’.

 

What type of preparation will I receive if I become a Faculty Fellow?

You will participate in orientation and training with ITSA interns and staff at the beginning of the program.
