ICLS 2018 ECW/DC Acceptances

ICLS 2018 Doctoral Consortium and Early Career Workshop

On June 23 and 24th, the International Society of the Learning Sciences will proudly host its annual Doctoral Consortium (Chaired by Carolyn Rose, Ben du Boulay, and Jun Oshima) and Early Career Workshop (Chaired by Erica Halverson, Rich Halverson and Eduardo Guzmán). These annual workshops are valuable as networking and mentoring opportunities in our community. We are grateful for funding from the ISLS and from the National Science Foundation in the US for funding to support these important workshops.

Both workshops have recently completed their review process. Between the two workshops, we received over a hundred applications this year. Overall, we were only able to accept 22 applications, 10 for the Doctoral Consortium and 12 for the Early Career Workshop. In our review process, we kept an eye toward accepting applications that were at an appropriate stage to benefit from the workshop while also showing a spark that demonstrates particular promise. At the same time, we balanced for representation across regions and disciplines.
