From Education Committee

The ISLS Education committee is looking forward to a stunning Doctoral Consortium and Early Career Workshops at ICLS Sydney. From a competitive field, 12 participants were selected for each program. Susan Yoon is coordinating the Doctoral Consortium and Tom Moher is coordinating the Early Career Workshop.

Results from the Survey of Graduate Programs in the Learning Sciences led by Frank Fischer will be available at the conference in Sydney. In addition, the committee has synthesized surveys from past participants in the Doctoral Consortium and Early Career Workshop. Participants report that the programs strengthened their research programs. They note that the programs provided them with valuable colleagues and that they continue to benefit from connections formed during the programs.
