Teachers, educators and curricula setters can enroll to access the curricula, methodology, and teaching content provided by the WIPO Academy. It is designed for individuals already playing a role in schools, training institutions, IP offices, ministries of education, teachers associations, regional and international educational bodies.

The Distance Learning (DL) Phase of the Program covers 4 themes addressing:

  1. existing IP teaching challenges and opportunities in schools;
  2. DL001- Primer on Intellectual Property;
  3. how to teach innovation and creativity through IP using interactive content on Copyright, Patents and Trademarks (Click here for more information), and
  4. a competency in either developing new lesson plans, customizing the WIPO Academy IP4Youth content, or creating a draft business case.

Selected participants will also complete a face-to-face training seminar under theme 5 covering the developing of learning outcomes relevant to innovation, creativity, and IP.

Academic support is provided throughout each theme by experienced coaches and IP experts.

What I learned during the four days of the seminar was very useful as I now have new knowledge and educational material that I would like to share with others in my country for the purpose of finding the best way to implement a national IP curriculum in schools.

I would also like to highlight that the alternation of lectures and workshops, combining individuals from different nationalities, throughout the seminar was very enjoyable and enriching. Thanks to this seminar, I will take this information back to DINAPI to see how to develop strategies with the Ministry of Education on implementing IP education in my country. Listening to the experiences of teachers in my region was very useful as well.

I really enjoyed this IPCC training. It was interactive, informative and creative in its demonstration.

For the first time, IP education has the perspective of enabling creativity and innovation. Such a training is timely in providing a tool to drive sustainable development and sustainable IP education.

Winne Berry Deputy Chief Education Officer, Ministry of Education, Jamaica

After having participated in the seminar, I am convinced that it is necessary to develop IP education in schools beyond its existing scope in order to connect it to creativity and innovation. This would help us motivate our very creative and diversely talented students to value their creativity through IP and continue to passionately produce creative and innovative outputs for society.

As our National Curriculum of Basic Education aims to develop critical and creative thinking and is based on transversal approaches such as rights, the orientation to the common good or the pursuit of excellence in taking on an active citizen role in regards to IP is also a very important when teaching the young.

I love my profession and I want to continue inspiring students to tap into their creativity because they are the light of our society. My dream is to promote the importance of IP because it is a new paradigm for human development that the nation needs for socio-economic growth.

I realized that taking notes and memorization were not as effective as teaching methods that encourage students to use their creativity. I hope to see a greater focus on IP at every level of the education system in the near future. And I will always make sure to impart my knowledge of IP rights to my students, children and friends.
