As a follow-up to a paper given at the 14th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education at Clemson University on August 5, 1996 (Creative Combinations: Chemi-Skill·Builder and PowerMacs), we would like to detail a typical session in our computer lab. Our commitment is to be present with the students, making computer time an integral portion of the lecture - not simply an add·on, to be done by students on their own time. Our commitment grows out of two things: that students can do good group work, with one of the members of the group being the computer; and that very good tutorial and individualized homework programs are available for prices that make them accessible for our budget.
