I want to support this idea. I have been disappointed that the Botanical
Society of America has not been more proactive in assisting young and
mature faculty to develop good courses at all level of university
curricula. The American Chemical Society helps chemists in a very
significant manner. I my opinion, BSA, een with a Teaching Section, still
needs to put more emphasis on undergraduate education. David Kramer of this
group certainly has done all he can to make the section as much as it has
become, but one or a few people cannot do it alone.

I was thinking the other day how much I appreciate seeing Ross Koning's old
exams on his web page, and how they give me new ideas of how to ask more
innovative questions.
