About this book

Introduction

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.
