Lytle) enabled us to be the first in our college to place computers on wet laboratory benches for use by our introductory biology students. An NCBC grant (with J Zimmerman) that soon followed enabled us to develop software that extended but did not replace the traditional hands on experience. I am currently interested in true interactive distance efforts and transforming the traditional lecture into an active learning environment, especially in large courses such as the non-science introductory biology course (over 200 students per section) I now teach.
