The ACMGroup12 International conference is over – what a pity! Around 100 participants from may different countries and different research communities met again. Topics were covered from a range of different domains, for example, IS, CSCW, organizational learning, Technology-Enhanced Learning, knowledge management and CSCL. Have a look here to the program http://www.acm.org/conferences/group/conferences/group12/index.html . When using the Twitter hashtag #group2012 you find interesting discussions.
The closing panel (organized by Sean Goggins, Drexel University and Isa Jahnke, Umeå University, Sweden) was about CSCL@Work where Gerry Stahl, Drexel University, Anders Morch, University of Oslo, Norway and Thomas Herrmann, University of Bochum, Germany discussed the challenges, theories and methodologies of CSCL at work (Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning at the Workplace) and its potentials for the next ACM Group conferences. The Group conference is one great opportunity to bridge work and learning, to bridge CSCL and CSCW.
