There's a new project we're involved with and we think you'll want in!
Researchers from Purdue, Michigan State University, and SageFox are leading a newly funded NSF project, CSEdGrad, that may be beneficial to CS Education Research-focused graduate students and advisors. CSEdGrad is exploring what pathways exist for future Computer Science Education Researchers and how these graduate students can be supported. Our goal is to understand the diversity of current experiences of CSEd graduate students and what they see as mechanisms of support to pursue their career goals. We would love to know your story. In turn, we hope to build a learning community to connect, empower, and mentor CSEd graduate students.
We would like to invite advisors or CSEd Research-focused graduate students to be a part of this project by providing us with some basic information and being added to our private CSEdGrad database. Next spring we will be inviting those in our database to participate in the project by completing a survey and targeted mentoring opportunities. Your participation will provide you with resources that we are gathering in the CS education field, a heads up on potential funding and career opportunities, and connect you with a nationwide community of CSEd Researchers. If you would like to get involved or learn more, please CLICK HERE.
We are available to answer any questions you may have, and look forward to your participation! Also, please share this with other CS Education graduate students who may be interested in being part of this project and emerging community.
Also, we have just heard that we have been accepted as a Birds-of-a-Feather session at the upcoming SIGCSE Technical Symposium in Portland this coming March (our session time has yet to be set.) We hope you will join us and share in the discussion about PhD pathways for CS Education Research students.
