Speaking Personally--With John Seely Brown
American Journal of Distance Education, v22 n1 p57-62 Jan 2008
This article presents an interview with John Seely Brown, a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California and a former chief scientist of Xerox Corporation and director of its Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)--a position he held for nearly two decades. While head of PARC, Brown expanded the role of corporate research to include such topics as organizational learning, knowledge management, complex adaptive systems, ethnographic studies of the workscape, and nanotechnology. He is a cofounder of the Institute for Research on Learning. His personal research interests include the impact of globalization on business, the management of radical innovation, digital culture, ubiquitous computing, and organizational and individual learning. The interview focuses on Brown's paper "Learning in the Digital Age" and the implementation of distance education. [This interview was conducted by Amy Kavalewitz, institute coordinator for the Computer and Information Technology Institute at Rice University.] (Contains 1 note.)
