Abstract: This case study describes a project in which we aimed to contextualise the teaching of electronics to a large student group that does not major in in the discipline through a case study design approach developed across the entire module. The target circuit design measures mechanical force or load - important phenomena in the students’ core study area. Design ideas and analysis tools are introduced as required to progress the design rather than being grouped towards the front of the teaching as is often the case. A pilot study has been completed and a large group activity is currently underway.
