About this Webinar

The Online Materials Education Symposium is a free event designed to inspire and create discussion around online materials-related undergraduate teaching and to share best practices. This symposium is our second online event and is part of the Materials Education Symposia series. The interdisciplinary nature of materials teaching is a major focus of the symposia, exploring how materials can link different subjects together, especially with simulation-based design, and learning from experiences of teaching materials and processes across the curriculum.

In this online symposium, the presenters will focus on how materials, engineering, and design teaching has changed during and after the Coronavirus pandemic. Or in a nutshell, what have we learned about online delivery, and what will we retain? Four outstanding engineering educators from four institutions in UK, USA, and Canada will share their experiences in four presentations and then join in a discussion panel and answer your questions.
