Dr. Shane’s scholarly and research interests are in chemical education as well as science teacher education. These broad interests reflect his background as a former high school teacher and his current responsibilities both as a member of the chemistry department and coordinator of Shippensburg’s secondary science education program. More specifically, his interests lie in improving chemistry instruction, qualitative research methods, and the impacts of educational policies on teachers’ classroom practice.
