This was a great course and I think not only for me.
There were 21 motivated and bright students and my former student, Dr. Brian Satola as a teaching assistant. We started at 9 every day and Brian and I left the room at 4.30 or 5 in the afternoon. In the second week we mostly stayed as long as the students (approx. 10 pm) to answer tons of good questions.
The best thing was that we had the impression that everybody actually enjoyed thermodynamics, which is seldom the case for students (and even grown up researchers).
On the last day the students gave a short talk of 5 to 8 min each followed by some questions and discussions and the preparation was very good in each case.
Also on a personal basis the course was extremely pleasant. We already miss the students a lot. I think some even would have liked to continue for a few days. To give you an impression, here is a photo of the group from the course dinner on the day before last:
This course was VERY special good and I look forward to teach at ChEPS regularly from now on.
