Research at the cutting-edge can only be performed if students are well prepared to apply NMR spectroscopy. Different to many other spectroscopies, the analytical power of NMR requires in-depth integration into teaching curricula both for graduate and doctoral students that apply and utilize NMR as well as for those that develop new NMR experiments.

Development and exchange of educational material for Bachelor/Master programmes A particular strength at many of the participating centers is the good integration of teaching NMR spectroscopy in the curricula of Chemistry, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics and Biophysics. A wealth of teaching material is already available in the internet (mostly in English). However, for specific needs it can be very time-consuming to find appropriate material of good quality, or material that is available in a format that allows it to be easily adapted to one's own needs. In addition, problem sets with interesting and challenging NMR quizzes are particularly useful and stimulating for students. A benchmark has been provided by the books of Prof. Berger, Leipzig, in this respect. However, free availability and knowledge on how to use such software for the simulation of, e.g., the effect of pulses can still be improved. Hence it will be useful – in a first step – to collect an overview of such material already available at the different places (scripts, exercises etc.). The material will then be reviewed to develop a basic, common teaching curriculum, which will be made available within the NMR network.

For different reasons (copyright, holding back "solutions" for students' exercises) it will be necessary to partially restrict access to this material (e.g., to registered users only). These resources will be made available to all participating institutions and should be regularly updated to incorporate new developments in the field. We will also identify areas where adequate resources are not yet available (e.g., solid-state NMR) and specifically develop material for that purpose in a shared effort between different institutions.

New web-base teaching initiatives For standard purposes (basic NMR introduction for chemistry/biochemistry students, exercises with 1D spectra etc.) appropriate material will be developed that can be used by students to learn about NMR autonomously. The idea will not be to replace traditional teaching of NMR courses at NMR centers or universities, but to enrich these courses by supplying additional training material (e.g. good quality spectra of substances with various degrees of complexity) where students can further apply and train their skills learned in traditional courses. Of course, such material (scripts and exercises) made publicly available on the internet for self-studies will have to follow a higher quality standard than teaching material intended to be used in
traditional NMR courses, where it will be further screened, modified and explained by experienced instructors.
