Small groups from systems perspective

September 10th, 2010 · No Comments · dissertation

After a longer than acceptable hiatus, I am restarting my academic work. My immediate focus is on  developing an understanding of the academic landscape in the areas of small group collaboration. I am particularly interested in looking at problem-solving groups as self-organizing systems. Each member of the problem-solving group brings their own unique combination of skills, knowledge, and prior experience, and the success of the group problem-solving depends on diversity of experiences of group participants. The group is self-regulated and only exists with the particular membership for the instance of a particular problem-solving event. After the problem is solved, the group dissolves and may be reassembled with the same or different membership during the next situation when this type of participation is needed.  In the next few months, I am working on building a theoretical foundation for my dissertation work on knowledge co-creation in small problem-solving groups.
