The Early-Career Workshop provides opportunities for researchers working in CSCL and in the Learning Sciences early in their careers to discuss their own research, to discuss post-doc and early-career challenges with peers and senior mentors, and to initiate international networks related to their research topics. There will be online interaction to prepare for the conference workshop where participants will identify common interests with respect to research and common challenges with respect to this early phase in their academic career. During the workshop that takes place over 1.5 days, participants will present their research and get feedback, talk to different mentors in small groups, and discuss possible new international research networks with their peers. In addition, a “meeting with the journal editors” session will be organized. The main contents of the workshop include: Research funding opportunities for post-docs and early career researchers; how to develop a research agenda, and/or consider their own career development; publishing–where and how much, promotion; how to mentor and supervise graduate students; new research methods; and possibilities for building international research networks? The workshop will also have a focus on the specifics of the CSCL community and on the challenges and opportunities that exist in our community (e.g., interdisciplinarity, gaps between different methodological approaches). The early career workshop is designed for post-doc and early career researchers starting with those who have just finalized their doctoral thesis to those having 5 years of experience after receiving the doctorate with research interests in CSCL and the Learning Sciences.
