The contribution of research to teaching in Chemistry

I’m currently preparing an Endpoint article for Education in Chemistry in which I will argue that chemistry benefits from being taught by active researchers, in that they can show that the subject is very much alive and active, through examples from their own research, and ideas from conferences etc. This is an important and timely issue, with some departments employing non-research active teaching assistants, and with potential funding changes post 2012. I would welcome any comments, via the blog or my Twitter account, on this subject, for possible inclusion (fully acknowledged) in the article.
