Introduction to CSCL

Gerry Stahl, International Journal of CSCL,


Abstract: The ijCSCL Board of Editors presents a day-long introduction to CSCL. This tutorial will be a dialog among oldtimers and newcomers to the CSCL community. The day will be divided into four sessions, focusing on CSCL visions, CSCL practices, CSCL technologies and CSCL theories. During each session, several members of the ijCSCL Board will discuss with each other and with the audience the broad topic for that period. This will be an opportunity to participate in a unique discourse about central issues and controversies in our field. The dialog will be computer supported by the ijCSCL wiki.
