Please feel fee to share the links with anyone you know who might be interested in donating, or in just learning more about the scholarship, about our fantastic students and alums, and about Bob’s legacy.
Reaching our goal of $25,000 by the November 1 deadline will allow us to fully endow Bob’s scholarship and begin awarding funds to students for the upcoming cycle (2022-2023).
Our graduate student special interest group chair has been hard at work putting together events for our graduate students, like the panel in January on alternate career paths for PhDs. She’s also produced this very informative newsletter that should be of interest to all CALICO members.
In an effort to make your CALICO membership worth even more to you and offer you something which might be of help during your busy schedule, CALICO brings you CALL Research Briefs which are digest-length summaries of current CALL research articles.
For those of you interested in specific types of computer-assisted language learning, you might want to take a minute and look through CALICO’s special interest groups and see if you’d like to join one or more of them.
Here are a couple of newsletters recently published by the Graduate Student SIG and the Virtual Worlds SIG
