Timothy Koschmann's research has shifted from an initial concern with how technology might be used to augment collaborative forms of instruction to more fundamental inquiry into the social organization of learning and instruction. These he studies (along with a variety of other closely related phenomena such as discovery, understanding, and reason) as interactional matters. This work is ethnomethodologically-informed and draws on the methods and findings of Conversation Analysis. Koschmann has conducted fieldwork in a variety of educational and medical settings.

Organised by the Institute of Education & Society (InES) and the research group Learning in Joint Activities.
