Using simulation as an experiential learning tool for enhancing students learning in environmental engineering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In an introductory environmental engineering course, a simulated activity created a learning environment that encouraged self-learning and retention of knowledge. Students demonstrated technical knowledge gain about 1) the global cycle of mercury; 2) trans-boundary mercury contamination; 3) local mercury contamination, and 4) technical solutions for remediating environments contaminated with mercury.
