Organizational Self-Design in Worth-Oriented Domains
Sachin Kamboj (University of Delaware, USA) and Keith S. Decker (University of Delaware, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-60566-256-5.ch022
This chapter presents an approach to organizational-self design (OSD), a method of designing organizations at run-time in which the agents are responsible for generating their own organizational structures. OSD is especially suitable for environments that are dynamic, albeit slowly changing. Such environments preclude the use of static, design-time generated, organizational structures, and yet contain certain characteristics and conditions that change slowly, if at all, and these characteristics can be harnessed for the purposes of creating stable organizational structures. This chapter extends the existing approaches to OSD by applying them to worth-oriented domains – that is, domains in which problems are represented using TÆMS based task structures. This chapter presents our OSD primitives and framework and discusses some interesting future lines of research.

GSS Research for E-Collaboration
A hierarchically designed organization in which there is one deciding participant and one or more supporting participants. In contrast to a group, there is clear differentiation of decision making authority, a division of labor into distinctly specialized duties, and a restricted pattern of communication.

Informatics Education Enhanced by Problem-Based Learning Model via E-Learning: Experience From BSU Project at SUA
This is a group, sharing and working closely together in design, decision making, analysis and reflection. The binding cooperation of members on successful completion of the project is an essential component of the overall approach to learning. Theoretical and factual information may be transmitted from teacher / instructor to learner through a lecture. Related learner tasks (activating activities) may transform the information into knowledge ( Dahms & Zakaria, 2015 ). Working in groups, students identify what they already know, what they need to know, and how and where to access new information that may lead to resolution of the problem. The role of the instructor (known as the tutor in PBL) is to facilitate learning by supporting, guiding, and monitoring the learning process. The tutor must build students' confidence to take on the problem, and encourage the students, while also stretching their understanding. PBL represents a paradigm shift from traditional teaching and learning philosophy, which is more often lecture-based. The constructs for teaching PBL are very different from traditional classroom/lecture teaching”.
