Flipping a Thermodynamics course.
Thermodynamics is one of the fundamental subjects that most engineering students need to master. However, the topics are abstract and very hard to visualize. Even though students had a chance to preview some of the basics during a prior physics course, it is often the case that students do not take the courses in sequence.
The material consists in the redesign criteria of a Fundamentals of Thermodynamics course addressed to Engineering students. It describes the background, new design and preliminary redesign results application. The course covers thermodynamic properties and processes, equation of state, the first and second laws of Thermodynamics, and entropy. This material creates various supplemental materials including modular video tutorials, recorded in-class lectures, self-assessment quizzes on Blackboard, and the curation of videos that demonstrate thermodynamics concepts.
