'Information in context' : co-designing workplace structures and systems for organizational learning
Somerville, Mary, M. & Howard, Zaana (2010) 'Information in context' : co-designing workplace structures and systems for organizational learning. Information Research: an international electronic journal, 15(4).
With the aim of advancing professional practice through better understanding how to create workplace contexts that cultivate individual and collective learning through situated 'information in context' experiences, this paper presents insights gained from three North American collaborative design (co-design) implementations. In the current project at the Auraria Library in Denver, Colorado, USA, participants use collaborative information practices to redesign face-to-face and technology-enabled communication, decision making, and planning systems. Design processes are described and results-to-date described, within an appreciative framework which values information sharing and enables knowledge creation through shared leadership.
