NEWSLETTER | Teaching Resources #3
NEW and UPDATED Resources
We have updated the lecture units, exercises, project files, eco audit files and databases on the Granta Teaching Resources Website to work with CES EduPack 2015. In particular the Process Universe-related lecture units have been updated to include the topic of additive manufacturing and the Eco Audit Tool resources support the use of the new cost estimation.
We develop CES EduPack in conjuction with the community of Materials Educators that use CES EduPack. If you would like to see what we are working on and give us some feedback, visit our development web pages. We are currently working on projects to create better resources for Materials Science and Engineering courses, including a functional materials database and a phase diagram tool. The other area of major development is products and materials - engaging Engineers and inspiring Designers by connecting products to the materials and processes used to create them. You can download prototype databases and try them out and tell us what you think.

Webinars for educators using CES EduPack are held on the second Wednesday of the month at 4pm London time. These are designed as training events where you can ask questions and see directly how CES EduPack is used in teaching. Join us in September for "Getting Started with CES EduPack". Please encourage any colleagues new to CES EduPack this year to attend. CES EduPack is easy and intuitive to use. You don't need training, however, the video tutorials can help students get quickly up to speed. We offer Short Courses and Workshops at conferences and, if requested, at individual universities, that present a good opportunity to go in depth and to discuss with your colleagues how you think CES EduPack can best suit your teaching.
Here are some tips for the software:
