Conference website:

We are happy to announce an interdisciplinary workshop to explore principles of computer-supported collaborative learning in work settings. The workshop’s theme is simply CSCL at work, CSCL@Work, Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at the Workplace — learning at the workplace enhanced by new technologies.

o Theories, pedagogies and models for CSCL@Work to enhancing creative skills for knowledge-building and problem-solving
o What are the theoretical and methodological implications of the (empirical) cases presented, and where do they take this emerging research space?
o Identifying strategies for gaining access to workplace learning research sites.
o Key design principles for CSCL@Work – How can tools and methods of the recent CSCL-research be transformed to be applicable for CSCL@work?
o What is the nature of learning in a CSCL@Work setting and is this different from learning in schools?
o Didactical designs for CSCL@Work enhanced by mobile devices
o Learning design approaches to enhancing CSCL@Work including design patterns
o Development methodologies for CSCL@Work
o Innovative mobile applications/tools for fostering CSCL@Work incl. virtual learning environments & gaming
o Informal work-integrated learning, vocational education and vocational learning; workplace training
o Innovative mobile user interfaces for creativity including concepts and products towards CSCL@Work
o User stories, case studies and evaluations of CSCL@Work
o Future visions for CSCL@Work including frameworks and methodologies
o Socio-technical solutions and process design for collaborative learning at the workplace

We invite different types of contributions ranging from work in progress, demonstrations and results from research and practice, academia and businesses. Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research as extended abstracts (max. 3 pages). It should include description of the theoretical concept, including a definition of CSCL@Work, learning and the computer support ( e.g., Social Media, mobile devices), underlying presented work and empirical research results (if available). Since the approach is interdisciplinary, the workshop seeks to attract different participants, including students, research in companies, designers, practitioners and developers. Papers reviewed and selected by the Program Committee will be published on this website

Please send an extended abstract to the workshop organizers:
Sean Goggins
Isa Jahnke
Thomas Herrmann

Paper submission not later than 1 April 2013 to the organizers
Acceptance notification: 22 April 2013 (early registration 1 May 2013)
Workshop Date: 16 June 2013 (presumably 8:30am-12:30pm)
