I have 10 years' experience using technology to improve undergraduate chemistry and biochemistry education. At Dickinson College, I helped develop a technology-rich chemistry curriculum inspired by Priscilla Laws's Workshop Physics program. This effort included the integration of molecular modeling throughout the curriculum, with support from the NSF-ILI program. In 1995 I moved to the National Research Council, where I directed the Committee on Undergraduate Science Education (CUSE) and the Board on Engineering Education. A key CUSE project was a study of effective uses of information technology to improve undergraduate SME&T education, funded by HHMI. I left the NRC in early 1999 to join ScienceMedia, a start-up educational technology firm in San Diego, where I will lead efforts to develop interactive multimedia for general chemistry and biochemistry. Finally, I continue to work as a consultant for Dickinson's Workshop Physical Science Project, where I am lead author on two curriculum modules.
