Abstract Title: Design and assessment of multimedia modules for physics instruction in a flipped classroom course for pre-health and life science majors
Abstract: We are developing modular multimedia educational material for undergraduate physics for pre-health and life science majors. The modules include videos containing interviews with biomedical experts in conjunction with illustrations, images, and videos of the biomedical devices in clinical use. We are drawing on the expertise of a large network of educators, education researchers, medical practitioners, and physics and biomedical researchers. The multimedia materials enhance the ability of physics faculty without an extensive biomedical background to use our materials even without access to biomedical experts.  The online format of our multimedia modules is portable and allows us to reach a broader community of educators and give more students access to our educational materials. We are conducting a study of students' attitudes toward the modules in comparison to the traditional introductory physics courses. The preliminary results of the study will be presented.
