About this book

This volume, edited by a top scholar in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), presents important papers from the first decade of the International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (ijCSCL). The selected papers represent a positivist approach to reality and data, as well as the paradigm of thought that many researchers in the field were initially trained in, and which continues to dominate the methodology of much of the work in the area and influence the later development of a second, social-constructivist paradigm of research. The articles in the volume are se - lected by the former Editor-in-Chief of ijCSCL, who has written critical commentaries on them from the perspective of influences on his own evolving understanding of CSCL.

The book is broken down into three parts: Theory – broadening the scope of CSCL; Methodology – analyzing the mechanisms of CSCL; and Practices – innovative appli - cations of CSCL. This volume is the only large-scale theoretical reflection on the field of CSCL, while simultaneously representing a broad selection of perspectives and ap - proaches. It is essential as a graduate text for courses in educational theory, instructional design, learning and networked technologies, as well as apply with vital centrality to researchers and practitioners in those areas.


About the authors

Dr. Gerry Stahl taught human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and social informatics (SI) at Drexel University from 2002-2014. He is trained in computer science, artificial intelligence, social philosophy, cognitive science and learning science, with a research approach in theory building, system development and empirical studies of software usage. A world-class researcher in CSCL, he has developed software systems and prototypes to explore support for collaborative learning and to develop the theory of CSCL. In addition to organizing international conferences and authoring over 300 professional publications and presentations, he published three major books based on his research in the Virtual Math Teams Project (VMT). He directed the VMT research project from 2003-2014 in collaboration with the Math Forum and Rutgers-Newark, with about $6 million in NSF funding. He is the founding editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (IJCSCL).
