Abstract: Central to effective student learning is engagement. This paper presents a student-centred approach to enhance engagement and, hence, improve learning outcomes in geo-engineering education. The approach incorporates a variety of facets or tools, which include: demonstration models; videos and documentaries; e-learning; and case studies incorporating geotechnical failures. These aids are particularly effective when used in combination with the traditional forms of lectures, tutorials, experimental classes and design projects. The paper includes details of each of these learning tools and the contribution each makes to improving student engagement and learning.
