I present some perspectives on teaching the subject of nuclear and radiochemistry in the form of a historical narrative. In addition, I briefly review a program, which we developed approximately seven years ago, to enchance learning in a specific course on the subject. This program involved developing illustrations, course notes, and video tutorials evaluating their effectiveness. After having used these aids extensively, I comment on their efficacy. Also, I briefly discuss the role of a nuclear science course in a nuclear engineering curriculum.
