Emerging Scholar CIRCLS Mentoring Series

Each quarter the Emerging Scholar CIRCLS offers a series of one-hour small group mentoring sessions intended to foster informal and candid conversations among established scholars in the fields of computer and learning sciences and up to eight emerging scholars in each group. Group conversations are shaped around participants’ interest and include topics ranging from research methods to the challenges of interdisciplinary careers. Registration for the mentoring sessions is open to the members of the Emerging Scholar CIRCLS. To join the Emerging Scholar CIRCLS community, please use this form.
