  • Develop Engineering Research Skills: Educator Spotlights on Elsevier Solutions
    Develop Engineering Research Skills: Educator Spotlights on Elsevier Solutions Daniel Christe Recorded: Aug 22 2018 37 mins
    Universities are ideal hubs for students to build knowledge synthesis and create skillsets. But, many undergraduate engineering students don’t take full advantage of the powerful information and resources that are available to them through institutional subscriptions.

    However, there are pedagogical strategies faculty can adopt to grow learners’ capabilities through knowledge synthesis, including leveraging tools like Knovel, Engineering Village, and Elsevier’s game-based learning experience called Engineering Academic Challenge.

    This webinar will address:

    • Examples of learning experiences where students have been asked to synthesize & apply information in new contexts and create new knowledge
    • The contexts in which students to develop research skills
    • Ways to leverage Knovel and Engineering Village to facilitate the learning journey and produce tangible research & education outcomes

  • Engineering Learning & Research in an Era of Symbiotic Technology
    Engineering Learning & Research in an Era of Symbiotic Technology Daniel Christe Recorded: Aug 15 2018 35 mins
    As technological change mediates virtually every realm of human life, the role of the engineer is expanding significantly and it is important that engineering educators are helping students prepare the new roles.

    While the foundation of a strong engineering education remains unchanged, the research tools that engineering graduates will employ throughout their careers are rapidly becoming more powerful and networked. As the engineering profession changes, however, advances in engineering education have been slow to come, despite prominent calls for change from bodies such as The National Academy of Engineering, ABET, and the National Science Foundation in the US.

    This webinar will address:

    * Innovative experiments happening in engineering education today and how you can incorporate new methods in your curriculum
    * Macrotrends impacting engineering education, practice, and the tools engineers use to discover insights from high technical fidelity information
    * Top skills that prospective employers are expecting from the engineering graduates of 2020
    * Ways to effectively incorporate databases such as Knovel and Engineering Village into a innovative engineering curriculum.

  • Reduce Environmental, Health, and Safety Risk With Knovel
    Reduce Environmental, Health, and Safety Risk With Knovel Matteo Caligaris Recorded: Jun 27 2018 54 mins
    In the face of inevitable regulatory changes, engineers must become savvy in their ability to respond to and anticipate change in order to limit product failures due to health, safety, environment and regulatory reasons.

    Striving for EHS excellence and risk reduction requires difficult decisions and trade-offs that need to be backed in data and best practices.

    In this webinar, we will look at how Knovel helped solve EHS and regulatory challenges for companies across industries. The learnings from these case studies can be applied to your own EHS issues.

    Knovel helps companies tackle development and production challenges by providing foundational engineering knowledge, best practices, and interactive data to support EHS risk reduction.
  • Corrosion Clinic: Solving Engineering Challenges in Corrosion Using Knovel
    Corrosion Clinic: Solving Engineering Challenges in Corrosion Using Knovel Matteo Caligaris Recorded: Apr 19 2018 42 mins
    When managing process safety and asset integrity issues, corrosion is a pervasive and complex problem. The serious risks are of global concern and cause material waste, plant shutdowns, and safety hazards.

    However, corrosion can be prevented or managed in various ways: selecting the right materials, using inhibitors, design modifications, etc. The challenge is finding an engineering solution that has relevant and trustworthy answers & insights all in one place.

    Knovel contains trusted & vetted best practice guidelines, case studies, property data, interactive content and more so engineers have confidence to solve corrosion problems.

    In this webinar, see how Knovel can help save you time and cost the next time you have a corrosion challenge.
