Please consider this course for one of your electives or PHYC 482/685:

Brief Summary of Immersive Learning project for Physics.

PHYSICS 469/685: Immersion Experiences in Physics
The treatment of Dysphagia (uncoordinated or difficulty in swallowing) is hampered by the lack of reliable thickening recipes for use in swallowing and feeding therapy sessions. At present time, there is limited standardized methodology for determining the viscosity of liquid levels and dietary modifications. The purpose of this Immersive Learning course is to involve students in a group learning environment to 1) accurately measure the viscosity of different fluids, 2) use these results to develop standard viscosity tables, and 3) develop procedures to disseminate this information to the larger health community. This course carries a 3 hour credit. All students will participate in every aspect of the procedure and will be graded accordingly. This course is open to physics, biology, and health science majors with an interest in being part of a team learning experience.
