Communications au travail et conception de dispositifs de formation

Communication at Work and the Design of Training Devices

To date, the “praxeological turn” has proven fruitful in examining how language can be a means for acting with and over others. This interactionist perspective on language has thus contributed to clarify how members of a working group organize themselves through exchanges, and this in multiple professional fields. This corpus has shown it is through daily interactions mediated by a given sociocultural context that individual develop their professional skills. In this issue, we examine further this constitutive aspect of interactive situations at work, or in initial and continuing training, for the professionals (beginners or more experienced), assuming that working with and over others is fundamental to these professions.

So doing, the contributions constituting this issue address questions as: how the analysis of communicational situations at work as a mediation contribute to deepen the understanding of the professional activity organization; how training devices themselves contribute to the possible inter-fertilization between professionals and scholars’ knowledge; or, some authors develop further on verbal traces and their effects for the analysis of constructive practices whether or not collectively engaged.
