Much has been made of recent news that the field of heat transfer has fewer teaching professors now than in years past. It remains a challenging field for many college students who then tend to go into other engineering applications. But this trend can be reversed by utilizing modern educational tools in a flipped class model that takes advantage of and optimizes both online delivery in concert with classroom activities. Specifically, the flipped classroom model allows for the use of graphical visualization of heat transfer (a phenomena that for the most part is outside our visual spectrum) in an online format and active learning exercises that engage students in the classroom. This paper will explain how both sides of this educational equation may be the optimal method for heat transfer content delivery.
