Abstract [en]

The purpose of this case study is to present an alternative way of teaching, using demonstrations as a teaching aid. A system for visualisation and demonstration of fluid mechanics, particularly laminar and turbulent flow, has been dei,eloped, used, and evaluated in a basic fluid mechanics course for students in Mechanical Engineering. The idea underlying the demonstrations was to enhance the students conceptual understanding of phenomena that emerged in fluid mechanics. In order to investigate the outcome, we asked the students from two different groups to fill out a questionnaire in a cross-sectional manner. The results indicate that demonstration-based education had increased the students motivation and probably enhanced their learning. This could imply that the student moved from a surface approach to a deep-level approach to learning.
