MYP Design Teacher

Developing a program from scratch

In June 2017, the school needed to add the MYP design course and curriculum to progress towards IB authorization. Drawing on my technical and artistic background, the school entrusted me with the task of curriculum development and teaching for this class. This endeavor presented a significant learning curve and demanded a substantial portion of my time, given that I was concurrently fulfilling my role as ICT coordinator.

Curriculum development

During the first year of teaching, I attended a workshop that proved immensely beneficial. While the workshop primarily focused on the 5-year MYP program, I gleaned valuable insights that I successfully adapted to our 3-year MYP curriculum. Over subsequent years, I concentrated on integrating both technical skills, such as coding and website development, and practical skills encompassing sewing, electrical wiring, and board game design.

Working with new teachers

As the program matured, a change in staffing at the school required a more dedicated focus on my ICT responsibilities. To facilitate this transition, I collaborated closely with the incoming Design teacher during their initial years. This year, I’ve been called upon to offer similar support, as we have a new design teacher joining our ranks. I assist in ensuring a balanced curriculum that incorporates both technology-oriented and product-based units.
