Cecil Mack Instructional Design & Innovation Specialist at Dubai American Academy


Prior to becoming a professional educator, Cecil Mack has had a variety of experiences inside and supporting positive learning communities. His first position landed him developing the Visual Arts, Tech Integration and founding member of the International School of Dongguan in China. Quickly he continued to grow into supporting the Science curriculum and developing the Film and Drama programs even to collaborate with students to building their own Multi-purpose Blackbox Theater. After establishing the first ever South China Student Film Festival in support from the Guangzhou American Consulate, student filmmakers both local and international were able to create video stories to be shared online and at festivals across Asia.

After multiple occasions as a professional development presenter, workshop facilitator and program coordinator across many countries, Cecil would begin his next chapter at Dubai American Academy in the UAE as an Innovation Teacher and help create the updated Innovation Program. This program would later be recognized by GEMS as the Most Innovative School of the year 2018. Now as an Instructional Design and Innovation Specialist, he hopes to continue to develop the best and balanced learning strategies for technology integration for 21st century students.
