I am an assistant professor of analytical chemistry at a college of approximately 3000 students. To prepare students for the instrumental and technological challenges that await them in future careers, I incorporate computers and instrumentation into all of my chemistry courses. I develop laboratory work that, at least in part, models real-world analyses. The following are examples of the use of relevant technologies in my chemistry courses. I am currently teaching part of my quantitative analysis laboratory as an interdisciplinary project. Students from quantitative analysis and genetics work as teams using forensic methodologies to solve crime scenarios. I am also part of a team which has set up electronic connections (see ftp site) and appropriate software for the transmission of spectra from a 300 MHz NMR and a GC/MS at the University of Idaho to LCSC. I am also developing Raman experiments that are pertinent to industrial applications.
