I teach Thermodynamics as a first-year course to undergraduate students at the University of Liverpool.  This course is the basis for a Massive Online Open Course entitled ‘Energy! Thermodynamics in Everyday Life‘ that we are developing and which will be available in February 2016.  In addition, I have written a book with Bob Handscombe entitled ‘The Entropy Vector: Connecting Science and Business‘ and edited a booklet called ‘Real-Life Examples in Thermodynamics: Lesson Plans and Solutions’ for teachers and lecturers.  The lesson plans are available on the Everyday Engineering Examples page of this blog.

The preparation of all of these materials has stimulated a number of blog posts which you can find by clicking on ‘Thermodynamics‘ in the Topic Cloud.
