Dear members,

We invite your submissions to the iConference 2012 workshop:

 Reflective Practices in Computer-Mediated Distributed Teamwork", 7th 
February 2012, iConference site:

Reflective Practice is an important part of professional
work. Virtually shared workspace removed the constraint of co-presence from
group activities [2] and it is common practice for knowledge workers to work in
shared virtual workspace with their group members. Although there have been
numerous studies about the design and use of shared virtual workspace to support
group activities, we have very limited knowledge about how to foster reflective
practices in group activities mediated by virtual shared workspace.  

This workshop aims at seeding such a research endeavor
through a research discussion about the pressing need for cultivating
reflective practices in computer-mediated distributed teamwork. Specifically,
we solicit position papers about one or more of the following research themes
and the related research questions:

Understanding reflective practices in distributed

Example of related research questions: In what circumstance
is reflection enhanced or increased? When is it discouraged?

Critical factors of the reflective practices in
distributed teamwork

Example of related research questions: How are an
individual’s reflective practices impacted by the team context? How does an
individual’s reflective practice affect his or her group’s practices? 

Methodology for identifying and evaluating
reflective practices in distributed teamwork 

Example of related research questions: How do researchers
evaluate the reflective practices? How are these techniques similar and/or
different when examining individual reflective practices and group reflective

Socio-technical approaches  for fostering reflective practice in
distributed teamwork

Example of related research questions:  What roles might members be encouraged to play
that matter most to reflective practices? Which are the best ways of supporting
the development of group reflective practice in the context? 

Authors of accepted position papers will be invited to
present their related work in the workshop. The workshop attendees will also
engage in a world café activity about the research themes. Serving as a
discussion forum, this workshop seeks to bring together a group of people to exchange
ideas, share researching findings, and form new collaborations.
