(293f) Design of Differentiated Curricula in Freshman Chemical Engineering Courses
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, November 15, 2016 - 9:50am to 10:06am
A differentiation framework for post-secondary education is currently being implemented at the University of Mississippi, Chemical Engineering Department, for ChE101: Introduction to Chemical Engineering, to target both lower and higher performing students and to improve retention rates. This framework has carefully organized the main differentiation principles into a logical and progressive sequence for learning, starting with an understanding of student need, providing multiple approaches to learning and challenging learning experiences, through to the ultimate goal of creating independent learners. This presentation describes the initial outcomes of implementation into ChE101, using instructor observation, student feedback and achievement to judge the overall success of the program. Future work will include the development of user guides for educators and students, adapting the framework into useful instructions for educators to develop a differentiated course, and for students to become independent learners.
