This article describes some of the theoretical approaches used by social scientists as well as those used by computer scientists to study the team and group phenomena. The purpose of this article is to identify ways in which these different fields can share and develop theoretical models and theoretical approaches, in an effort to gain a better understanding and further develop team and group research.

The following work presents an overview of smart sensors and sensor fusion targeted at biomedical applications and sports areas. In this work, the integration of these areas is demonstrated, promoting a reflection about techniques and applications to collect, quantify and qualify some physical variables associated with the human body. These techniques are presented in various biomedical and sports applications, which cover areas related to diagnostics, rehabilitation, physical monitoring, and th...

This work focuses on data-driven discovery of the temporally co-occurring and contingent behavioral patterns that signal high and low interpersonal rapport. We mined a reciprocal peer tutoring corpus reliably annotated for nonverbals like eye gaze and smiles, conversational strategies like self-disclosure and social norm violation, and for rapport (in 30 s thin slices). We then performed a fine-grained investigation of how the temporal profiles of sequences of interlocutor behaviors predict incr...

Collaborative learning has often been associated with the construction of a shared understanding of the situation at hand. The psycholinguistics mechanisms at work while establishing common grounds are the object of scientific controversy. We postulate that collaborative tasks require some level of mutual modelling, i.e. that each partner needs some model of what the other partners know/want/intend at a given time. We use the term “some model” to stress the fact that this model is not necessaril...

Behavioral convergence has been identified as one (largely subconscious) contributor to successful conversations, while rapport is one of the central constructs that explains development of personal relationships between these speakers over time. Social factors such as these have been shown to play a potent role in learning. Therefore, in this work, we investigate the relationship in dyadic peer tutoring conversations of convergence, building up of interpersonal rapport over time, and student le...

In manufacturing, advanced robotic technology has opened up the possibility of integrating highly autonomous mobile robots into human teams. However, with this capability comes the issue of how to maximize both team efficiency and the desire of human team members to work with these robotic counterparts. To address this concern, we conducted a set of experiments studying the effects of shared decision-making authority in human---robot and human-only teams. We found that an autonomous robot can ou...

This paper describes the R package crqa to perform cross-recurrence quantification analysis of two time series of either a categorical or continuous nature. Streams of behavioral information, from eye movements to linguistic elements, unfold over time. When two people interact, such as in conversation, they often adapt to each other, leading these behavioral levels to exhibit recurrent states. In dialogue, for example, interlocutors adapt to each other by exchanging interactive cues: smiles, nod...

In this study, we highlight the theoretical underpinnings of human impression management tactics and link them to current research in embodied conversational agents. Specifically, we incorporated impression management behaviors into an embodied conversational agent in order to show that different influence strategies affect user perceptions, and how those perceptions might be moderated by user gender. We programmed the agent to use two human impression management techniques (ingratiation and sel...

Abstract This study investigated the collective creative problem solving (CPS) processes and beliefs within a self-regulated learning (SRL) framework within a younger population, in order to further the research and provide practical advice to practitioners. Third through twelfth grade students (N = 120) competed in a creative problem-solving competition in which appraisers evaluated their creative problem-solving (e.g. teamwork, creativity,effective solution). Using a Micro-Macro Mutli-Level Mo...

This article reports on a study that followed up on an initial interdisciplinary project and focused specifically on the experiences of researchers involved in practice-based interdisciplinary research. We share an approach to research evaluation that focuses on the experiences of those conducting the research rather than the outputs. The study allowed those involved in the initial successful project to reflect post-hoc on their experiences. We show that neglecting fundamental conceptions about ...

Research on teams and teamwork has flourished in the last few decades. Much of what we know about teams and teamwork comes from research using short-term student teams in the lab, teams in larger organizations, and, more recently, teams in rather unique and extreme environments. The context in which teams operate influences team composition, processes, and effectiveness. Small organizations are an understudied and often overlooked context that presents a rich opportunity to augment our understan...

Abstract Metacognitive experiences are the feelings and judgments that emerge in relation to an ongoing learning task. Much of the work on metacognitive experiences has studied these constructs piecemeal and mostly in individual learning settings. Thus, little is known about how metacognitive experiences co-occur in social learning settings. In light of this, we investigated the relationships between metacognitive experiences and their impact on perceived and objective task performance in a coll...

This paper presents GAME-ON (Group Analysis of Multimodal Expression of cohesiON), a multimodal dataset specifically designed for studying group cohesion and for explicitly controlling its variation over time. Cohesion is here addressed according to the Severt’s theoretical multidimensional integrative framework. More specifically, GAME-ON focuses on the social and task dimensions of the instrumental function of cohesion. The dataset consists of over 11 hours of synchronized multimodal recording...

Shared understanding is central to a design team's performance. While current literature describes general relationships between team interaction and the development of shared understanding, it is not known if or how dynamic patterns in team processes impact this. Using a comparative study, we describe dynamic process patterns that influence the relationship between collaborative design work and shared understanding development. We propose two major patterns that impact shared understanding deve...

Abstract Computer-supported collaborative concept mapping (CSCCM) leverages technology and concept mapping to support conceptual understanding, as well as collaborative learning to foster knowledge co-construction. This article investigated the effect of different instructional designs using CSCCM on students' conceptual understanding, and on the type of processes of knowledge co-construction that students engage. Participants (N = 120) were 10th graders enrolled in their physics course, randoml...
