Technologies of Participation: A Case Study of CSCL@Work in Mammography

Mark Hartswood, Rob Procter, Paul Taylor, Lilian Blot, Stuart Anderson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We have been working with clinicians (mentors and trainees) to develop a computer-supported training environment for mammography. In this chapter, we draw on our experiences of this project to develop two important themes for CSCL@Work. First, we explore how the training environment constitutes a ‘technology of participation’ that extends the range of practice-based experience available to trainees in order to further their professional development. Second, we illustrate how collaborative learning practices are instrumental in relevancing content and experiences to ‘real-world’ practice and performance. Finally, we consider how to introduce new collaborative affordances that support for relevancing work in this transformed context.
