Development and Assessment of Energy Modules in the Chemical Engineering CurriculumAs part of a curriculum development project, a set of hydrogen and fuel cell modules hasbeen developed for use in core chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering courses.The formation of the modules centers about the principle that students learn best bydoing. Each module contains an introduction, problem motivation and background,example problem statement, example problem solution, and a homework problemstatement. Instructors can obtain the solutions from the lead author by email.The modules have been used at ________ University in the following manner: There is a short lecture on a chemical engineering topic The students are given a module to serve as an in-class problem The students work through the example problem in the module during class The students begin solution of the homework problem during class The instructor circulates around the room and assists students if they have any questions The homework problem is due at a future class meetingThere are also alternative ways to use the modules, such as being given them for out ofclass assignments, which was often the case when the modules were tested at otherinstitutions.In this paper we report on the development, testing, and assessment of these modules andreport future directions.
