He will give a talk about “A Conceptual Framework for Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at Work”. The talk will take place in Room C252 from 10:15 to 12:00. We cordially invite all students and members of the department!

Talk Announcement

Prof. Gerhard Fischer – A Conceptual Framework for Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at Work

Center for LifeLong Learning & Design (L3D)
Department of Computer Science and Institute of Cognitive Science
University of Colorado, Boulder, CO

Date: November 17, 2011
Time: 10:15 – 12:00
Room: C252


The presentation identifies challenges for Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at Work (CSCL@Work) by arguing that learning at work transcends our current understanding of learning as derived either from school learning or from current practices in adult education.

The presentation develops a number of themes defining a conceptual framework for CSCL@Work including the following: distributed cognition, integration of problem framing and solving, communities of interest, and meta-design, cultures of participation, and social creativity as approaches to learning when the answer is not known. It illustrates the framework with two narratives, identifies some trade-offs and barriers, and reflects on the impact and future of CSCL@Work.

Short Bio

Gerhard Fischer is a Professor of Computer Science, a Fellow of the Institute of Cognitive Science, and the Director of the Center for Lifelong Learning and Design (L3D) at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is a member of the Computer Human Interaction Academy (CHI) and a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

His research is focused on: (1) learning, working, and collaborating with new media; (2) human-computer interaction; (3) cognitive science; (4) assistive technologies; and (5) transdisciplinary collaboration and education.
