About the instructor: Bob Burk, associate professor of chemistry at Carleton, is a celebrated teacher. He won the 2006 3M Teaching Fellowship for excelling in the teaching of his own courses and demonstrating an exceptionally high degree of leadership and commitment to the improvement of university teaching across disciplines.

His numerous awards include the Capital Educators' Award (2005) and Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Association's 2004 Teaching Award. He incorporates extensive use of technology in and out of the classroom, including practical demonstrations, videotaping and broadcast of all lectures and tutorials, video streaming via the Internet, and vodcasting. Burk's first year chemistry course was the first in the world to be available via iTunes to anyone with a video iPod or personal computer.

In his tenure at Carleton, Burk has been instrumental in curriculum and course design in the chemistry department, where he has developed and delivered three undergraduate courses and one graduate course. He is a contributor to Carleton's Educational Development Centre where he sharpens his own pedagogical skills and where he is a familiar face to newer faculty members and teaching assistants.
