Abstract

A comparative case study examined two teams for instances of Productive Disciplinary Engagement (PDE) as they completed a complex, virtual process development project. Discourse from team meetings was analyzed to interpret how engagement unfolds, specifically classifying engagement in two dimensions: School vs. Engineering World, and task co-production vs. knowledge co-construction. Teams were found to move back and forth between School World and Engineering World as different aspects of the learning system become salient and instances of PDE were triggered when teams experienced productive frictions from interlocking components of the learning system.
