Preliminary Program - Group 2012

28 October, 2012 (Sunday)

9:00-10:30 Workshop & Doctoral Colloquium
 *  [email protected] revisited - beyond CSCL and CSCW    [Pelican]
  Sean P. Goggins (Drexel University, USA), Isa Jahnke (Umeâ University, Sweden), Volker Wulf (University of Siegen, Germany)
  Summary: This interdisciplinary workshop will explore key design principles of collaborative learning in the workplace. Our first workshop at ACM Group 2010, and the resulting book, raised an important set of issues and potentials for research, but dis not solve the thorny and controversial issues. This follow-up workshop will be focused on making progress on the identified issues and aims to fill a void between existing discourse in CSCW, knowledge management and CSCL.
