Resources to support your materials-related teaching

Resources to support your materials-related teaching

To support educators using CES EduPack, more than 300 Materials Education teaching resources are available on Granta's Teaching Resource website. In addition, many resources are available to all as Open Education Resources.

The resources cover materials teaching in engineering, design, and science and are primarily aimed at undergraduate teaching. They have been created by Professor Mike Ashby, Granta's Teaching Resources Team, and contributed by faculty from the 1000 universities and colleges that use CES EduPack worldwide. They are designed not to prescribe a particular teaching approach, but to provide ideas, graphics, exercises, and projects. Via the forum and the blog you can exchange ideas with the educators around the world.



Wall charts

When Cambridge University opened their new £48m home for the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, those exploring the new facilities were drawn to murals depicting the evolution of materials through human history. These were provided by Granta and based on material property charts generated using CES EduPack. These provide a highly visual depiction of how innovation has led to not just more materials, but materials which cover an increasing range of crucial engineering properties.

Similar poster-sized wall charts are available to purchase from Granta. Educators using CES EduPack can download and print their own from the Teaching Resource Website.
