Dr. Roy Bronander started at the college in 1971 in the Science Department. During his career here he taught Anatomy & Physiology, Biology, Genetics, Independent Study, and Microbiology. He was a beloved instructor by his students and continually sought ways to improve their learning experiences in his classroom.
Dr. Bronander was the first community college professor to be willed a cadaver for use in his teaching. He received many through the years and used them with students in Independent Study classes and in Anatomy and Physiology. He always insisted on great respect for the cadavers.
He developed a multi-media technology to electronically display microscopic tissue images in 1995. This was cutting-edge technology at the college. Instead of students taking turns looking at a microscope, the entire class was able to see the image being examined together. This was a breakthrough learning experience for the students. In his own words,
"The learning process in the lab utilizes special tables we designed to support a microscope-camera-monitor system used by teams of four students. We designed a compact arrangement that electronically transmits a high resolution microscopic image at each table. The great part is that students at each table see the same thing at the same time, and both instructor and students can use a joy-stick (electronic pointer) to indicate the structure under discussion. Students working as teams actively discuss the high-resolution, full-color video images. This results in quicker, in-depth understanding of complex structures and physiological processes. Tables are networked so other teams can be involved with the same image and related discussion. Videotaped and computer processed images can be produced as learning aids".
