Abstract There is a need for new pedagogical strategies to educate the current generation of engineering students who are still typically taught using standard lecture practices. The desire to address complex technological and social issues in an engaged manner inspired the development of a prototype board game created to raise the awareness of environmental issues in engineering. The board game, Shortfall, was designed as part of a graduate thesis for in-class play by undergraduate and graduate engineering students as well as business students. The game structure was based on team competition of “companies ” in the automobile supply chain, with the game objective set to achieve the highest profit. In 2005, it was evident that developments in digital technology allowed new opportunities to engage students in collaborative and active learning. A team of engineers, educators
