On-Snow Workshop – Alpine
The focus of the alpine on snow workshop is client satisfaction through dynamic student experience and engagement. The key messages in our on snow workshop are:
- Reflective Learning: Our philosophy of Student Centred Teaching has continued to evolve over the years. Research in how students learn new motor skills and retain knowledge has been the foundation for the CSIA’s Reflective Learning approach to learner development.
- Decision Making Process: Recognizing the complex environment ski instructors work within, the CSIA’s methodology is based on Decision Making.
- Technical Reference: Instructors require a simple, yet science based approach to technique. The Technical Reference is a set of guiding principles that apply to all levels of skiers, equipment, conditions and ages.
- Learner Attributes: All learners are different. Research has indicated that knowledge of these differences can positively affect the outcome of a lesson. We will touch on differences between gender (biomechanical and psychological), children and seniors.
Participants in our on snow workshops will be engaged through active participation in the delivery of the material. Our session leaders will model our learning philosophy while demonstrating our teaching methodology and showcasing our technical reference.
All session leaders are top Canadian instructors and course conductors. The majority of the team have participated in more than one Interski.
Sessions will be delivered in English and French.
We do not have a minimum or maximum size; however, groups larger than 10 participants will lose some of the individual engagement necessary for a successful experience.
Maximum number of groups is 12.
We will have one session leader per group.
