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.
