dB-SERC lunch discussion 09-28: Development of a Chemistry Department Safety Course
During the lunch, George Bandik and Ericka Huston from the Chemistry Department will discuss their efforts to develop a chemistry laboratory safety course for which they received a dB-SERC course transformation award. This course is being developed in collaboration with Pitt’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety, the Department of Chemistry Safety Committee, and local PPG Industries. The course is being designed to provide students a broader and more rigorous understanding of accepted best safety practices in modern chemistry laboratories. The structure of the course will be based on pilot activities being tested this term with a select group of students and faculty. The purpose of the lunch discussion is to provide feedback on the course design, class activities, and assessment.
