Abstract

MENTOR is a multidisciplinary research training program for graduate students in research field of mobility and posture disorders. Its members are distributed in a number of institutions across Montreal, creating challenges for the processes of collaborative research, joint supervision and scientific immersion. The purpose of our research project is to propose new distributed research and supervision practices supported by ICTs. In order to do this, we are designing a model of technological appropriation, taking into account the ongoing adaptation of the technologies and the evolution of the researchers' and students' practices. Collaborative working sessions are being observed in order to identify the pattern of the scientific community's activity. This will lead to the identification of actions and operations which should be supported by technologies and contribute to the development of scenarios which propose new practices of distributed collaborative research activity.
