Gerry Stahl’s professional research area is the field of CSCL (Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning). In 2006 Stahl published a book on CSCL in MIT Press entitled “Group Cognition: Computer Support for Building Collaborative Knowledge” and launched the “International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning”. In 2009 he published a book in Springer’s CSCL book series entitled “Studying Virtual Math Teams” on the VMT Project that he directs. His 2013 book, "Translating Euclid," extends the report on that research to include support for the collaborative learning of dynamic geometry. All his work outside of these academic books is published for free in volumes of essays at Smashwords (or at Lulu as paperbacks at minimal printing cost).
Gerry Stahl earned his BS in math and science at MIT. He earned a PhD in continental philosophy and social theory at Northwestern University, conducting his research at the Universities of Heidelberg and Frankfurt. He later earned a PhD in computer science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He now teaches at the College of Computation and Informatics at Drexel University in Philadelphia. His website--containing all his publications, materials on CSCL and further information about his work--is at http://GerryStahl.net.
