National Science Foundation POLY-ED SCHOLAR-1992-1993
    One of five scholars selected at the National  level to develop curriculum materials to incorporate polymers into general and organic chemistry curriculum. I developed curriculum materials for the applications of computer molecular modeling as a means of teaching principles of  polymers but also for simple molecules.  I authored a laboratory  manual for computer molecular modeling.  As a part of this program,  I helped to conduct three national workshops in 1993 for college  and university faculty.  These workshops were designed to teach  college and university faculty how to incorporate polymers into their curriculum and how to use computer molecular modeling as a teaching tool. 

    October 1992 Conducted a workshop at the University of Arkansas Chemical Education Conference on Computer Molecular Modeling. 

Recent activities include training in Multimedia Presentations. 
Attended two workshops on multimedia presentations.
These include: 
  1. Richland College Multimedia & Innovation Center Summer Institute for Multimedia Studies, June 16-18,1994
  2. Authoring Multimedia for Math and Science Instruction, International Symposium on 
    Mathematics/Science Education and Technology, San Diego, CA July 21, 1994 

Have organized and chaired 7 National Symposia at National ACS Meetings and one at Cameron University
