Abstract

The Teaching and Learning Materials Development Project is an ongoing collaboration between Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and teachers at the Presbyterian Primary School in Dwenase, Ghana. Prior to the project, a lack of classroom materials made it difficult for younger students to understand the curriculum. Teaching and Learning Materials are physical tools that aid the teachers with their lessons and build a better educational foundation for students. This project established an authentic partnership with the teachers through the method of co-design; which relies on close communication to create a solution alongside the community. This formed an educational exchange that built a foundation for cross-cultural development between the WPI students and the primary school teachers.
