We have created analogous versions of our inquiry-based activities for misconception repair in heat transfer to ease faculty adoption into just about any type of instructional situation. Activities now work as laboratory experiments, in-class demonstrations, collaborative studio sessions, or simulations that can be assigned as homework. In our paper, we discuss each of these modes in detail and how they may be accessed through the AIChE Concept Warehouse. We also have measured the impact of each of these modes on the conceptual understanding of students; we know from previous work that student-conducted experiments are effective at repairing misconceptions. In our presentation, we will share the effectiveness of the alternate modes of presentation, as well as data on how easy these new modes are for faculty and students to use. We invite everyone who is teaching a heat transfer course or another course where ideas about radiation heat transfer, or factors influencing the rate and amount of heat transfer, to access these activities and freely use them in class.
