NEWSLETTER | Teaching Resources #2
We have worked with Hugh Shercliff of the University of Cambridge to create a paper that shows how CES EduPack can be used to facilitate the understanding of what happens to the properties of materials when changing their composition, microstructure, or 'architecture'. Corporate Social Responsibility and Resource Efficiency are topics we have explored in a new paper using the new Sustainable Development Edition of CES EduPack. The other highlight is a set of exercises based on the two Bio Engineering white papers, which can be carried out using the updated Bio Engineering Edition with Level 3 data.
KEY resources for Sustainable Development
Sustainable Development is an important area of teaching. It motivates students, brings together different disciplines, and helps to prepare students for the changing demands of the future work place and society. We have road-tested a methodology for teaching engineering students on this topic, and the results have been written up in the paper below. A Lecture Unit and Exercises complement this paper and the Sustainable Development Edition of CES EduPack.
Webinars for educators using CES EduPack are held on the first Thursday of the month. We are having a break in August—back in September with “Beyond the Materials Universe”.
This academic year we have run training in Turkey, the UK, the USA, Denmark, Portugal, and Spain and have plans for courses in Singapore and Russia. Contact us if you are interested in attending a training course, or would like to arrange one for you and colleagues at your university.
Other recent events included the American Society of Engineering Educators Annual conference, where we spoke in the Design in Engineering Education session. If you are going to an event and want to meet up with us, you can find out if we are going here.
Here are some tips for the software:
Granta is always looking to hire great people. At the moment we are looking for another Senior Materials Education Consultant to join the Teaching Resources Team.
