Abstract [en]

Educational institutions face many challenges in closing the gap between what is currently offered through academic engineering curricula and what is expected by society in general and industry in particular. There are many aspects to these challenges and here we address needs that are specific to global professionals by investigating the knowledge, skills and abilities needed for mediating and using Collaborative Technologies (CT) in an Open Ended Group Project (OEGP) within a global setting. We discuss these needs as framed by relevant theoretical frameworks for collaboration and learning (including Collaborative knowledge building and Collaborative Technology Fit), mapped using empirical data from a course setting involving global collaboration between two universities (one in the United States and one in Sweden). The paper concludes with a commentary on competencies beyond discipline specific technical skills and presents recommendations, based upon this research, for developing students’ proficiency in both mediating and using CTs in OEGP courses. These recommendations are followed by an outline of key areas for future research.
