Experience Details
Position Title: 
Writer/ Materials Development
Responsibilites / Tasks: 
In this experience, I am responsible for writing and developing materials for the company and various schools. Materials have been developed for professional development workshops for teachers introducing English into the classroom and their curriculum. I have also been assigned to correspond and meet with various learning institutions to develop instructional materials for use in the classroom and workshop settings.
What did you learn: 
Thus far, I have gained a lot of insight into the working culture here in Hong Kong. As well, I have learned a lot about the education system here. A new initiative was recently launched that focuses on incorporating the English language into all major classroom subject areas. This has led to a widespread outsourcing in terms of materials development.

International work experience - my experiences working as a writer and materials developer in the Hong Kong education system.
