This morning I had another idea: Maybe we could also organize some kind of student project mentoring program. So if a student is tasked with a specific project, we could see whether someone from our community would be willing to support him with this project. I’ve heard during the conferences that students sometimes are left hanging and/or tasked with too big projects.
Or maybe we could organize something like what PHD students do, as in, having some sort of a online peer group. And if possible, we could have a more senior member of our community support that peer group.
