Abstract

While the exchange of utterances between collaborators have been viewed as the
primary vehicle for meaning-making in CSCL, we have been encouraged by the CSCL19
theme to expand this understanding to include intercoporeality as way of foregrounding
bodies in collaborative learning. We find that collaboration, meaning-making and problem
solving is also occurring even when collaborators are lacking words for expressing their
thoughts in talk. Thus, we promote the idea of viewing CSCL as a field concerned with
intercorporeality in meaning-making practices. Through a detailed analysis of a group of
architectural engineering students, we unpack how they prepare for a critique session by
building upon each other’s utterances, gestures and manipulations of objects in their design
studio thus displaying intercorporeal memory and understanding. Based on the analysis we
discuss three themes related to incorporeality in CSCL: Ecologies of technologies, Historical
development of the bodily-material resources and Subtle manifestations of intercorporeal
understandings.
