Lawrence J. Genalo's PhD. is in Applied Mathematics with an emphasis in Systems Engineering. He has been at Iowa State University since 1971, and has been an Associate Professor since 1981. He has served The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) as Program and Division Chair for Freshman Programs and The Division for Experimentation and Laboratory Oriented Studies (DELOS). His current research interest is in bringing high-technology classroom delivery systems into greater use in engineering education through his work with the NSF-funded Synthesis Coalition. Iowa State is a member of this coalition along with Berkeley, Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo, Cornell, Hampton, Southern, Stanford, and Tuskegee.
Dr.Genalo has been very active in the Synthesis Coalition in the area of high tech classrooms and courseware development. He has also served as a mentor in the Program for Women in Science and Engineering. Most recently his interns have prepared web documents for explorations by younger girls.
