Craig Frisby, associate professor in the Educational, School and Counseling Psychology Department in the College of Education at the University of Missouri, will discuss test session behavior, multidimensional scaling applications and measurement of critical thinking with College of Education students, faculty and staff on Nov. 2 as part of the college’s Research Wednesdays Speaker Series.
Frisby is co-editor of the Comprehensive Handbook of Multicultural School Psychology and is the author of several book chapters and journal articles. He has also received several research grants, including a National Science Foundation grant entitled “Curriculum to complement accessible scalable vector graphic authoring and editing applications,” and grants from the MU Research Council and the Woodcock-Munoz Foundation, among others. He received his Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of California-Berkeley (1987), and his M.S. in educational psychology (1980) and B.M.E. in music education (1979) from Indiana University-Bloomington.
The Research Wednesdays Speaker Series is designed to fulfill three goals: to provide a platform for explorations of new ways of conducting and disseminating educational research, to discuss new methods of mentoring doctoral students in an effort to enhance their development as researchers, and to fill a professional development need by providing access to cutting edge researchers at the state and national levels.
Research Wednesdays is held Wednesdays at 12 noon in the COE Forum, Room 1030 (30 Pryor St., Atlanta). Speaker presentations are also available for download at iTunes U.
A light lunch will be provided for those who confirm their attendance to Erin Whitney in the COE’s Educational Research Bureau at (404) 413-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Also on Nov. 2, the College of Education will host Research Wednesday Morning. Joe Piffaretti, senior director of Georgia State University’s Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations; Alison Norsworthy, associate director of the COE’s Educational Research Bureau; and Stephanie Douglas, COE director of development, will discuss services offered by the GSU Foundation.
Research Wednesday Morning is designed to help faculty, staff and students navigate the processes associated with grant work – collaboratively navigating grant business issues, what it’s like to be the principal investigator on a grant and other topics.
This presentation will take place at 10 a.m. in the COE Forum, room 1030. A light breakfast will be served for those who confirm their attendance by contacting Erin Whitney at (404) 413-8090 or email@example.com.
