Dr. Stahl taught human-computer interaction (HCI), computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and social informatics (SI) at Drexel from 2002-2014. He is trained in computer science, artificial intelligence, social philosophy, cognitive science and learning science, with a research approach in theory building, system development and empirical studies of software usage. A world-class researcher in CSCL, he has developed software systems and prototypes to explore support for collaborative learning and to develop the theory of CSCL. In addition to organizing international conferences and authoring over 300 professional publications and presentations, he published three major books based on his research in the Virtual Math Teams Project (VMT). He directed the VMT research project from 2003-2014 in collaboration with the Math Forum and Rutgers-Newark, with about $6 million in NSF funding. He is the founding editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (IJCSCL).
