This paper presents the results of the 2010 AIChE Education Division survey on how chemical engineering courses are taught. This year's survey focuses on the undergraduate reactor design and kinetics course. The survey was conducted of faculty recently teaching the course at their institution during the 2009-2010 academic year in the United States and Canada. The report consists of two parts: the statistical and demographic characterization of the course and its content; and the remainder seeks to bring out the most innovative and effective approaches to teaching the course in use by instructors. Additionally, a historical comparison is made between the current survey results and surveys on the same course conducted in 1974, 1984, and 1991.
