Team Cognition: Coordination across Individuals and Machines


Team cognition emerges as both the process and product of effective collaboration and coordination. This chapter examines the essential vocabulary for framing team cognition as an interdisciplinary endeavor. A historical review of major contributors to contemporary team cognition theories is provided to establish the field’s place in the larger stories of psychology, computer intelligence, and learning. Mental model representation methodologies provide bridges between theory and practice.
