WCC Chemistry Instructor’s Article Published

A Wayne Community College chemistry instructor has been published in an international journal.

Dr. Brian Duffy co-authored “Safety in STEM Education Standards and Frameworks: A Comparative Content Analysis” with collaborators from Pennsylvania State University, Texas State University, and Connetquot Central School District in Long Island, New York.

The work appeared as a “Safety Spotlight” article in a special issue “Implementing STEL [Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy] of the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association’s “Technology and Engineering Teacher” journal. It was published this month.

Duffy expressed surprise about publication but said that he hopes the article “sheds some much needed light on safety in STEM classrooms for K-12.”

Duffy serves as chair of the National Science Teaching Association’s Safety Advisory Board.
