8 Scopus citations


An inductive approach to teach heat and mass transfer courses that will appeal to students is presented. Inductive learning promotes deeper learning and results in longer retention of the information to students. The first concept is presenting material using an inductive lecture format. The second concept presented is an inductive order of topics within an area of transport. In heat transfer, simple heat exchanger design is the first topic addressed in the course. In mass transfer, student start with the design of a gas absorption power.
