Keith S. Anliker

Senior Lecturer and Director, Laboratory & Curriculum Support, Chemistry

Education

B.A., University of Northern Iowa, 1982
M.S., Purdue University, 1985

My areas of interest and expertise are chemical education and public outreach. I seek to develop and implement methods for improving performance in introductory chemistry, evaluate emerging technologies for their use in the classroom and for distance education, develop demonstrations of chemical phenomena, and design and test experiments for the undergraduate laboratory curriculum. Additionally, I am interested in improving strategies for training and coordination of teaching assistants.
