He recently served as the Evaluation Researcher for a multimillion dollar, four year U.S. Department of Education grant (P336C020018) at CSU focused on urban teacher retention, which resulted in a paper on teacher educator cultural competence presented at the Second International Conference on Language, Education, and Diversity in November 2007. As part of a two year grant, Dr. Beebe served as the External Evaluator for the National Conference of Community and Justice (Western New York Region) ANYTOWN diversity leadership programs for middle and high school students. In addition, he provided evaluation research services for the Erie 1 Board of Cooperative Education Services’ Diversity program which focused on hiring and staffing policies. He also received a CSU faculty development grant to develop the online delivery of the CSU graduate-level Education Research course, an Ohio Learning Network Learning Community grant to revision the online core courses of CSU’s College of Education and Human Services Master’s programs, and a CSU library grant to improve information literacy.
He has presented at several national and international conferences on models of classroom-based research, including American Educational Research Association, National Association of Professional Development Schools and the Holmes partnership. He continues to research and develop individual and collaborative models of classroom-based research for pre-service and in-service educators.
