Abstract: We propose that ethnographic studies that precede, but inform, design, can be a productive addition to the repertoire of CSCL design. We anchor our claims in a case example of a cognitive ethnography of an introductory undergraduate history course. We describe how the ways in which learners self-organized and created practices for producing, sharing and reproducing knowledge in the course inform our design of CSCL tools for cultivating historical reasoning practices. This approach identifies points of contact between pre-existing practices and collaborative structures and pedagogical considerations. This enables designers to infuse pedagogical innovations into the activities that local participants already value and perform, achieving benefits akin to participatory design approaches. This can be productive for building on local practices that may be difficult to elicit through design discussions, especially if these local practices are part of learners’ counterculture.
