Some of the best practices for use in the chemical engineering courses that traditionally occur later in the curriculum include solution thermodynamics; heat and mass transfer; kinetics and reactor design; process control; and senior design. A common thread is in the deviation from the traditional lecture format. Students are given the opportunity to take ownership of their own learning. Popular methods include the use of in-class demonstrations, hands-on activities, tours of the unit operations lab, and seeing a movie or simulation of a concept. It has been experienced that incorporating novel methods into the classroom can increase learning as students in the latter part of the curriculum transition from the classroom to the workplace or graduate school.
