Academy for Higher Education
Resources and information specifically for educators in higher educational institutions
On this page you will find modules, resources and multimedia that you can use either whole or in part in your classroom. These include teachable examples of basic physical principles related to statics, dynamics, structures and material properties.
Earthquake engineering provides an excellent context for learning about engineering design, experimentation and practice. The NEES community contributes various resources, activities, lessons and curricula to the Academy Resource pool.
Subsets of resources have been highlighted and are presented to you below. However, you might instead want to Search All Learning Resources.
