Since 1992, I have been Principal Investigator of Project CLEA, Contemporary Laboratory Experiences in Astronomy, which develops computer-based simulations for the introductory astronomy laboratory. These exercises use digital data from real telescopes, along with Windows-based software, to provide hands-on experiences in astronomical techniques which would otherwise be impossible because of the expense and complexity of the equipment and time and weather requirements not available to teachers. I have also been involved in introducing electronic imaging using CCD cameras into the undergraduate astronomy curriculum, and for 3 years served as editor of CCD ASTRONOMY magazine, a popular publication which addressed both amateur and professional astronomers.
