Introduction to Materials – Service Teaching

with Hannah Melia and Lee Phillips

Join this web seminar on Thursday, June 2 to find out more about how CES EduPack supports the teaching of introductory materials courses to first and second year university students, and new tools for teaching these courses from a science-led perspective. The session will be of particular interest to educators who teach materials to students in other departments and subject areas.

Join this web seminar to:
  • See ways to open students' eyes to the world of materials
  • See engaging examples and stories about why materials matter
  • Discover how to visualize materials properties, and how and why these properties change during processing and service live
  • See a sneak peek of a prototype Phase Diagram Tool to support science lead courses, and a new database that shows how properties of materials change with processing.

How to register and join the session

There is no cost but registration is required through the WebEx system. Please ensure you set your local time zone to receive accurate meeting invitations and test your setup in advance of the meeting. How to use WebEx, including setting times zone & language preferences
