ICLS 2008

More recently, I was at ICLS 2008 in Utrecht, NL, where I participated in a First Timers Workshop and presented a paper based on my dissertation research.

The First Timers Workshop organized by Marcia Linn, Janet Kolodner, and Naomi Miyake was fantastic. Here is the workshop description:

The First Timers Mentoring Workshop is designed to increase participation in ICLS and build community among newcomers. Participants will present posters in mentoring sessions, give each other feedback, and meet with mentors to synthesize the interactions and plan their ICLS 2008 activities. Participation is limited to those who submit first-authored posters or papers to ICLS and have not previously presented a first authored poster or paper at an ISLS meeting.

I presented a full paper in a session following Engeström’s keynote on the first day of the conference. It was such an honor for me to present my work alongside researchers whose work I greatly admire, and to have people who I cite in my work attend my talk. At the end of my talk, I unveiled visualizations of Knowledge Forum activity that Chris has generated for me with my data. We blogged about these in their infancy a couple of years ago, for e.g. here and there, and again. Pretty cool!
