Prince, Michael; Koretsky, Milo; Self, Brian; Vigeant, Margot – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Cognitive conflict arises when students' expectation about a physical situation, such as the relative temperatures of metal and cloth, are not experimentally verified. The paper reviews this approach as a tool for promoting conceptual learning in undergraduate engineering courses, through three case studies. These cases demonstrate that cognitive…

Bodnar, Cheryl; Dringenberg, Emily; Butler, Brittany; Burkey, Daniel; Anastasio, Daniel; Cooper, Matthew – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Chemical engineering students need to be prepared to make process safety decisions in industry. Through analysis of the decision-making process of senior chemical engineering students, we found students would rather be "better safe than sorry" and did not often acknowledge complexities associated with their decisions. Their decisions…

Cooper, Matthew E. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
A ChE process safety assignment using case study videos produced by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) is described. Study of student perceptions of video quality and effectiveness of 25 CSB videos identified a number of entries highly-regarded by students which would make good choices for in-class discussion/assignments. Student ratings of…

Bayes, Taryn Melkus – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
The number of PhDs awarded in chemical engineering is disproportionate with the number of tenure track positions available; an overview of the contributions that can be made by teaching-focused faculty is presented. Statistics are provided for the number of chemical engineering faculty in the US by rank, position and gender. Based on literature…

Goldberg, Deborah S. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Faculty receive requests for recommendations from their students every year. They want to support their students as they apply for internships, full time jobs, and graduate school, but often struggle with how to do this in an efficient and effective manner. This is especially challenging given the number of students they have and the late and…

Butrus, Salwan; Greenman, Kevin; Khera, Eshita; Kopyeva, Irina; Nishii, Akira – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
The interdisciplinary roots of chemical engineering have shaped its history and fostered its rapidly evolving nature. Through ongoing research, graduate students in chemical engineering departments remain abreast of the field's evolution. Yet core undergraduate curricula often fall short of introducing students to the breadth of current research…

Cooper, Matthew; Bullard, Lisa G.; Spencer, Dan; Willis, Chris – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Direct and indirect assessments of student learning, motivation and course experience were completed for a two-semester online chemical engineering graduate bridging course. Both direct and indirect assessments showed students better accomplished learning objectives associated with material and energy balances, momentum/heat/mass transport,…

Clay, John D.; Collins, Eric – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Generating a problem that addresses multiple course learning objectives can be a challenging, but worthwhile exercise for a professor. These types of problems are particularly useful late in a course to help students tie together seemingly disparate concepts to solve an integrated problem that requires them to review concepts mastered throughout…

Gautam, Satyen; Nagarajan, Karthiga; Loh, Kai Chee; Zhou, Kang; Yung, Lanry Lin Y.; Tong, Yen Wah; Li, Zhi – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
The paper explores the effectiveness of hands-on learning (HOL) as a student-centered model to train first year chemical engineering undergraduates. The pedagogical design of the course uses laboratory sessions, lectures, reflection sessions, projects, and assessments to achieve the course learning outcomes. The adopted assessment methodology…

Shaffer, Justin Franklin – Chemical Engineering Education, 2020
Two-stage exams, in which students first complete an exam individually and then again as a group, have been used successfully in many disciplines to promote collaboration, learning, and retention of learning. However, it is unknown what the impacts of two-stage exams would be with chemical engineering students. In this study, two-stage exams were…

Jackson, Scott C.; Skaf, Dorothy – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
EXCEL spreadsheet algorithms were developed at Villanova University to efficiently and consistently retrieve information from ASPEN® flowsheets and used for grading work in senior design. The challenge is to take a large volume of data that is in the stream and unit operations reports and quickly and consistently calculate a list of key grading…

O'Connell, John P. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Thermodynamics challenges teachers and learners. Its pervasiveness about nature, mathematical abstractness, nonnumerical relations, and complexity in applications can inhibit understanding and usage, especially by undergraduates. Perspectives are given about these obstacles, and some suggestions are made to enhance comprehension of the discipline.

Fisher, Robert J. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Our exponentially increasing knowledge base creates many new technology challenges. Academia must therefore respond emphatically. Educating rising professionals to successfully confront these future difficulties requires innovative curricula challenges. A successful adaptation integrates STEM program protocols into core courses. Embracing…

Wankat, Phil – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Surveys were sent to readers of "Chemical Engineering Education" in 2004 and 2018. The survey questions, detailed numerical results for 2018 and average numerical results for 2004 and 2018 are presented. Readers in 2018 are, in general, reading fewer articles than in 2004. In addition, all of the comments from both years are presented.…

Hess, Dennis W. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Upon graduation, engineering (and science) undergraduate and graduate students are typically well-prepared for success in technical problem solving. However, they have had little exposure to the vagaries associated with the interplay of "people" and technical problems (sometimes referred to as sociotechnical efforts), especially as…
