Moog on what he wants to accomplish in the next decade: “Simply put, I want to keep learning new things. Over the past several years, I have become interested in education research, particularly issues related to measurement and instrument development—and my scholarship is now focused in chemical education research. But I still have a lot to learn!”

What his colleagues say:“Rick has influenced hundreds of teachers and tens of thousands of students because of his tireless commitment to the learning and teaching of chemistry. I am not alone when I say that I have learned a tremendous amount from this dedicated professional who puts the needs and talents of others ahead of his own glory.”—Diane Bunce, U.S. Naval Academy
