My Work at Saturday Kids

I’m the course owner for all of the courses for ages 11 and above at Saturday Kids. This means I create new courses and maintain existing ones. This involves keeping the platform and content up to date and training all our instructors. I am also in charge of training all the volunteer instructors for the Level 1 Python course for Code in the Community.

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I spearheaded the effort to teach our Python curriculum. I piloted the first few classes to students in Japan & Singapore and trained other teachers including over 100 Code in the Community volunteers.

I teach all the classes I design and own and like to take a very hands on approach with curriculum development. If you would like to know more about how I design courses, read this blog post about how I led my team through a design sprint with the GV Sprint methodology to design the Code Meets World course and the motivation behind it.

Creating Programming Curriculum & Teaching

Below is a description with examples of my curriculum creation process. I have 2 years of experience doing everything from designing, documenting, teaching and training.

Step 1: Gather assets and code out the project for the lesson
Step 2: Write detailed steps on how to write the code and the concepts needed
Step 3: Turn the instructions into visually appealing slides
Step 4: Teach Online or Offline (This is one of my online classes)

Content Creation for Learning Management Systems

I was contracted by Kaplan to write, storyboard, narrate and animate a series of videos and quizzes that were compatible with their e-learning systems. I learnt on the job about the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) while fulfilling this contract.
