An inductive approach to teaching courses in engineering

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

11 Scopus citations


A method to teach several courses in chemical engineering that will appeal to the inductive learner is discussed. This process involves combining traditional lectures with traditional laboratories after they have been modified. Induction promotes deeper learning and results in longer retention of the information to students. Instructors can teach inductively by presenting by presenting familiar phenomenon, practical issues, or experimental observations before presenting a general principle.
