Curriculum Innovations

  • HSCI 580: Occupational Ergonomics (Dr. McGlothlin developed this new course in the spring of 1999). Enrollment in this course has grown from 25 in the first year offering and for the past 2 years has between 85-100 students; it is offered in the fall.
  • HSCI 581: Applied Occupational Ergonomics (Dr. McGlothlin developed this new course in the fall of 2000). It has approximately 25 students and is offered in the spring.
  • HSCI 582: Video Exposure Monitoring Methods (Dr. McGlothlin developed this new course in the fall of 2001; it has between 7-12 students and is offered in the fall.
  • HSCI 201 Principles of Public Health (Dr. McGlothlin co-developed this new course in the spring of 2001. It started with approximately 60 students and is now the largest course taught in the School of Health Sciences with over 200 students taking this course in the spring.
  • HSCI 590b Public Health Law and Policy. (Dr. McGlothlin co-developed this course with Judge (retired) Linda Chezem and Professor Kathy Weaver. It was first offered in the fall of 2007, and has been offered in each semester since its inception. It is taught to students at Purdue, and to Indiana University Bloomington, and Indiana University/Purdue University (IUPUI). The course enrollment has ranged from 13-20 students per semester.
  • HSCI/SA 317 Contemporary Issues in International Public Health. (Dr. McGlothlin developed this course in 2006 and offers it to students who want to study abroad during the summer. Australia was the country visited in the summer of 2007, and India, Cambodia and Thailand were visited in the summer of 2008. Enrolment has ranged from 13 to 30 students.
  • An Ergonomics Track was developed for the Graduate Occupational and Environmental Health (OEH) Sciences Program in the School of Health Sciences. The ergonomics track innovation allows students in the OEH to focus on Ergonomics issues. In 2008 this track was integrated into the overall OEH degree.
  • In 2005 Dr. McGlothlin developed an Interdisciplinary Ergonomics Program for students at Purdue to pursue. It is offered in the School of Health Sciences at the Master's and Ph.D. level. The innovation of this Interdisciplinary Ergonomics program is that it capitalizes on recruitment of academically strong engineering Master's students (most from the School of Industrial Engineering) into the School of Health Sciences to learn how to apply engineering principles to solve occupational and healthcare delivery issues.
