Abstract: External scripts have been widely used to guide computer-supported collaborative learners, yet little attention has been given to the internal collaboration scripts. These internal scripts can contain procedural knowledge, which is elaborated, organized and flexible. Is there evidence for expertise on collaboration and, if so, is it domain-specific or domain-general? If there is expertise on collaboration the retrieval of rich internal collaboration scripts should be differentiable from the retrieval novices' scripts. In two studies collaborative experts and novices of the domains academia and medicine were confronted with stimuli, in which people were involved in, sometimes technology-supported, collaborative activities. To test for domain-specifity stimuli differed regarding the same vs other domain as the subject. The answers were subsequently coded. There is evidence for expertise on collaboration as the results show that experts retrieve more script-like information overall. The difference was significant for stimuli regarding the same content domain, thus indicating domain-specifity.
