This contributed book shapes the emerging field of group learning by drawing on research from leading theoreticians and researchers.

This book will be of interest to all working in the area of group learning, including theoreticians, researchers or professional level practitioners who want a solid grounding in group learning theory and research. Students of organizational behavior will benefit from having the group learning literature brought together in a single volume with chapters from leading researchers.
