Brief Bio:
Dr. Debbie K. Jackson is an associate professor in the College of Education and Human Services. Dr. Jackson taught chemistry, physics, and physical science in two different high schools before beginning her career at CSU.

At Cleveland State University, teaching and partnerships are the focus of Dr. Jackson's efforts. She recently co-directed Project CREATE (Curriculum Redesign Effort Advancing Teacher Education), a project including the redesign of early childhood, middle childhood, mild/moderate special education, and moderate/intensive special education teacher licensure programs. She is currently serving as Interim Co-Director, teaches and supervises students in the CSUTeach program for secondary mathematics and science teachers (http://www.csuohio.edu/cehs/te/csuteach). Dr. Jackson also is a co-principal investigator for several grants related to STEM, teacher preparation, project-based instruction and computer science education.

Dr. Jackson serves as the Network leader for the Metropolitan Cleveland Consortium for STEM Regional Ohio STEM Learning Network Hub (http://www.osln.org/hubs/northeast-ohio-hub/) and Co-Director of the Center for Innovation in STEM Education (http://www.greatscience.com/educators/educator-professional-development.aspx).
