Waterloo Cases in Design Engineering has a mandate to promote the scholarship of teaching, learning, and assessment using the mechanism of cases. This requires active investigation and refinement of techniques for the development and implementation of cases, and a constant evaluation of their effectiveness. This is accomplished in part through the presentation and publication of papers.

The following is a list of recent publications based on our work:

Assistant Professor

Michigan State University

My experience teaching with the University of Waterloo Engineering Cases is great. As a professor I am able to relate the theoretical contents to real life applications, which makes the students be very involved in the class. When students were asked for feedback about the class, they mention they like real life examples and the class being very enjoyable. The cases make class relatively easy to prepare and make me feel more involved when teaching.
