Championing teaching innovation in engineering classrooms

When we think of a typical university classroom, we picture a lecture hall filled with students listening to a professor. While this structure is still useful, not all students learn best this way and not all subjects are taught best in this way. This is where the teaching methods of Andrew Sowinski and Clémence Fauteux-Lefebvre of the Faculty of Engineering come in.
