Granta web seminars

Granta web seminars for all Materials Educators

Our regular web seminars are for anyone with an interest in Materials Education, covering ideas for teaching materials, case studies from industry and education, examples of the use of the CES EduPack resources, and previews of resources that we are working on.

  Water Containers and Plastic WasteQuarterly Case Study Session: Water Containers and Plastic Waste
To engage today’s students, it’s important to find topics that are relevant to them. The current problem of plastic waste from packaging ending up in nature is an illustrative example. In this advanced industrial case study, we will show how the CES EduPack software can be used to understand and assess different approaches and options within product development and design.
CES EduPack 2018Vehículos eléctricos: sostenibilidad y materiales críticos
Únete a nosotros para ver este caso práctico sobre un vehículo eléctrico. Exploraremos cómo considerar el ciclo de vida completo de los productos para llevar a cabo decisiones sobre materiales. Descubre cómo emplear este caso práctico en docencia y aprendizaje.
CES EduPack 2018Materiali e Sostenibilita’ dei Veicoli Elettrici
Iscriviti a questo seminario online per seguire un caso studio sui veicoli elettrici, dove esploreremo come analizzare il ciclo di vita da un punto di vista dei materiali.
CES EduPack 2018Plastic waste: the material challenge
The challenge of plastic waste accumulating in landfills, on beaches and in the sea has several dimensions – not least of which are the economic and social impact. In this webinar, we will focus on how CES EduPack can be used to examine the material and environmental aspects of this challenge.
Engagement and Feedback: Creating Value in the Materials Science ClassroomEngagement and Feedback: Creating Value in the Materials Science Classroom
Professor Stephen Krause of Arizona State University is this year’s winner of the ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) Michael Ashby Outstanding Materials Educator Award. He will be repeating his talk on Engagement and Feedback, first given as an invited speaker at the ASEE conference this year.
CES EduPack 2018Materialauswahl für ein Kettensägen-Schwert
Sehen sie unsere neueste Fallstudie, die wir in Kollaboration mit der HS-Ravensburg-Weingarten und Stihl erstellt haben. Darin diskutieren wir verschiedene Aspekte der Produktentwicklung für Kettensägen(Schwerter), der auftretenden Lastfälle, und deren Übertragung in eine Materialauswahl. Außerdem erkunden wir alternative Optionen zur Gewichtsreduzierung.
CES EduPack 2018Envases de agua y desechos plásticos
En este caso práctico industrial avanzado, mostraremos cómo se puede usar el software CES EduPack para comprender y evaluar diferentes enfoques y opciones dentro del desarrollo y diseño de productos, especialmente cuando se trata de propiedades ambientales.

Bioengineering – preparing students for real-life challenges Bioengineering – preparing students for real-life challenges
In this live webinar, we’ll show how the Bioengineering Edition in CES EduPack can help students understand why some materials are more appropriate than others for particular applications. With support from science notes, video tutorials and learning resources, students can quickly work their way through materials selection exercises as demonstrated in the demo.

  Quarterly Case Study Session: Materials selection for bone implants: Is Titanium the best?
Details TBC.

Online Case Study sessions for CES EduPack users

In addition to the open web seminars above, Granta runs regular Quarterly Case Study sessions, providing ideas for educators who are using CES EduPack in their courses (note, these sessions is not open to students).

Using the WebEx system for Granta web seminars

Granta uses the WebEx system to support our web seminars and online training. Anyone with an Internet-connected computer should be able to join via a web browser. You can either stream the audio through your computer or (recommended for optimal performace) dial in using a telephone. The system should work well with most personal computers, but it is always worth testing it before your first attendance at an online event, as it may need to install some components in your browser.
