We created an interdisciplinary workshop to explore principles of computer-supported collaborative learning in work settings. The workshop's theme was, simply CSCL at work. Our first workshop at ACM Group 2010, the 2 nd at ACM Group 2012, and the resulting book, raise an important set of issues and potentials for research, but does not solve the thorny and controversial issues. This workshop wanted to make progress on the identified issues. The CSCL@Work workshop was a half-day workshop devoted to sharing innovative approaches and discussing solutions aimed at understanding studying and designing 'learning at work' supported by digital/mobile technologies. We selected the CSCL conference as an ideal venue for a workshop on this topic because the North American and European communities who participate in the Learning Sciences include leading members of the international CSCL communities. The workshops at ACM group focused more on CSCW whereas this proposed workshop on CSCL2013 included CSCL researchers. It started with contextualizing the current situation. Then, participant questions and proposed solutions aimed at the issues we have raised and begun to recognize. We focused on working groups, an approach, which supports knowledge building. To participate in the workshop, discussants was asked for a position paper of up to 2 pages in standard CSCL conference format. Our edited book was made available to participants in advance, and selected authors provided overviews of their work and perspective in an interleaved way with the more action oriented working sessions.
