CSCL at Work: Workshop at Group 2010

We invite researchers as well as practitioners to submit a position paper about computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) in the workplace. This workshop emerges from observations the organizers have made in their own work,. First, learning is no longer an activity that is separate from work. Second, research examining the design, efficacy and practice of CSCL in the workplace is limited.

We will bring people together from different scientific communities, including CSCL, CSCW, small group research, Technology-Enhanced Learning, sociotechnical-pedagogical design and interaction design.

Researchers will need to consider how CSCL at work is designed for and studied. What are the theoretical and methodological implications of the cases presented, and where do they take this emerging research space? Practitioners will be compelled to rethink how workplace training is conducted, and how more collaborative learning strategies could contribute to higher performance, faster transfer of technology from research and development to product and changes to other significant output measures.

Learning at work is about more than acquiring new information to perform a task. It is also about developing new knowledge to help a firm, an organization or a government improve its services in socially measurable as well as economically measurable ways.

Three goals motivate the workshop:
1) To identify and discuss examples of CSCL at work.
2) To identify theoretical and methodological commonalities and contrasts across the represented disciplines relative to CSCL at work.
3) To further define the constituency of researchers who share an interest in exploring collaborative learning in the workplace.

The workshop "CSCL at work" will take place at the International Conference GROUP’10 -- 7 November 2010 -- Sanibel Island, Florida. More:
