Studying activity patterns in CSCW
We study small distributed work groups capturing, managing, and reusing knowledge in a collaborative activity. We conceive this process as adaptation of a group to an activity and we study it in a realistic semicontrolled setting. We briefly describe our approach, method, preliminary results, and research trajectory. Keywords Activity patterns, knowledge management, CSCW ACM Classification Keywords H.5.3 Group and Organization Interfaces; H.5.m Information Interfaces and Presentation: Miscellaneous Activity-centric approach Recently, researchers working at the intersection between the fields of Management Information Systems and Human-Computer Interaction have observed that the shift toward the knowledge economy introduces a greater demand for workers, groups, and organizations to adapt to changing work conditions.
