Our unique Teach by Design methodology helps schools and teachers harness the power of design thinking for impactful curriculum design and lesson planning.
The Teach by Design bootcamp is a 1-day intensive skills building experience that guides teachers through the entire design thinking process, from developing empathy for their end users to rapidly prototyping and testing innovative solutions
We take a practical approach to leveraging the best of design thinking, and customize it for the teaching environment. The methodology focuses on providing a structured, useful process for teachers to develop powerful new content and programs to deliver in their schools and classrooms.
Whether it be a single PD day, or a wider transformation program, we can work with your school to utilise design thinking to deliver amazing learning outcomes.
The Teach by Design program is a community-driven initiative developed by a team of partners passionate about education.
We are seeking to work with teachers to help them explore the skills they need to ensure their students thrive. Each of the partners below have introduced their unique expertise into the program.
Whether its students parents or other teachers put the people you're designing for first and develop a deep understanding of how they experience the problem before you even think about solutions.
Give yourself permission to think big and create new possibilities then make strategic decisions to zero in on the next step you need to take.
Make your ideas real and get them into the hands of yours users as early as possible then learn to rapidly pivot or persevere based on valuable feedback.
Bring along the program, unit or lesson you need to design, and you’ll leave with fresh insights and ideas, and the first prototype of your innovative new content.
In addition to the intuitive tools we’ll provide, our community of Teach by Design teachers will co-create a new suite of design tools made for teachers, by teachers.
Once you’ve mastered it yourself, you’ll be ready to empower your students with design thinking as a creative problem-solving technique.
A really engaging and useful workshop. A simple to understand yet comprehensive process. The experiential workshop ensured the process was understood and provided useful learnings that can be implemented.

Really insiteful and thought provoking approach to designing educational experiences.
Thank you for providing this wonderfully rare opportunity for creative/reflective thinking and sharing with us the benefits of design thinking for teachers and students.
The day was structured really well! All the elements flowed nicely and there was never a time where activities felt laborious. Matt is very knowledgable and provided a lot of helpful insight and feedback.
The Teach by Design Workshop provided me with a framework to assist with constructing future classroom activities and pedagogies in my repertoire.
"The content was awesome and I really felt inspired to take the first step - also Matt was a great facilitator and kept everyone motivated throughout the course - LOVED IT!"-
