Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book fills the void between existing works in Computer-Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) and Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL). CSCL and CSCW each make important and distinct contributions to the construction of  collaborative workplace learning and this book fully encapsulates the emerging application of collaborative learning theories and practices to workplace learning.

Intended for researchers and practitioners, CSCL at Work first guides the reader through the theoretical and methodologic implications of  the latest data. Once a foundation is in place, numerous detailed case studies prompt readers to rethink how workplace training is presently conducted, how more collaborative learning strategies can contribute to higher performance, faster transfer of technology from research and development and other significant workplace output measures. 

Contrasting with traditional workplace learning, focused on task oriented, practice oriented, or regulatory compliance objectives, CSCL at Work recognizes that creativity and innovation emerges from collaborative learning. Researchers in the fields of CSCL and CSCW need this book to expand their understanding of the intersection of these two related but discrete fields, and to provide guidance in the application of the principles of CSCL in the workplace.   


About the Author

Dr. Sean Goggins is an Assistant Professor at the College of Information Science and Technology at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA . His research considers how the uptake and use of information and communication technology creates new opportunities for small groups to come together and perform work, be social and dissipate physical boundaries that have historically restricted the growth of nascent organizations. In particular, Sean focuses his research on the integration of methods from phenomenological research traditions, social psychology, sociology, human information behavior and design studies to explore socio-technical phenomena within organizations and outside of canonical organizational boundaries. Dr. Isa Jahnke is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Research on Higher Education and Faculty Development of the Dortmund University of Technology, Germany. Her academic background is in sociology, educational sciences and computer science. Isa Jahnke’s research considers on new forms of computer-mediated human structures by using new media. In particular, she focuses on the study of socio-technical informal learning by developing theories, concepts and methods. Professor Volker Wulf is on the faculty of information Systems and the director of the Media Research Institute at the University of Siegen . At Fraunhofer FIT , he heads the research group, User-centred Software-Engineering (USE ). He is also a founding member of the International Institute for Socio-Informatics (IISI ), Bonn. In 2006/07 Wulf spent a sabbatical as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and at Stanford University, Palo Alto. His research interests lie primarily in the area of Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Knowledge Management, Computer Supported Cooperative Learning, Entertainment Computing, Human Computer Interaction, Participatory Design, and Organizational Computing.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a gift I knew it would be of special interest to a special family member who works in that field the book examines in detail many aspects of computer supported collaborative learning and includes for eg. learning/teaching in schools colleges and the workplace in health care and the community the chapters are supported with sections derived from actual experiences from wide ranging practioners one of the reasons i chose it was that it was published in 2013 so many 'computer ' books for sale are not up to date i would recommend this book for that and the reasons above
