Shannon Campe is a Project Manager in the Research Department at ETR. She focuses on bridging research and practice in education with an emphasis on studying and supporting equity and inclusion in computing and STEM more broadly for all K-12 students. She also serves an external evaluator on research projects, focusing not only on tracking project benchmarks but providing feedback to project teams to increase their effectiveness. Her understanding of both educational practice and computing has led to presentations and publications in the fields of education and computer science education.
Ms. Campe writes grant proposals, designs and manages multi-site research projects, manages data collection and analysis and conducts developmental evaluation and meta-syntheses. She applies her teaching skills to writing curriculum and working with teachers, schools and community organizations to bridge research and practice. She enjoys working in all areas of education and research, with the focus on coordinating all parts and team members of a project, while staying connected to the youth and educators involved in the work.
Ms. Campe earned her BA in Art History at University of California Santa Cruz and a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at California State University Monterey Bay.
