Read more about Center for Activity Theory- University West below.
Activity theory originated as a monist, materialist, Marxist psychology grounded in the works of Vygotsky and Leontiev. Over the years, it has been applied to organizations and larger social systems to better understand how people collectively learn, investigate, solve problems, and deliberate over desired futures. Activity theory has been applied in fields and disciplines as diverse as education, organizational sociology, human-computer interaction, computer-supported cooperative work, hospital administration, writing studies, and entrepreneurship and management. Most recently, across the world activity theory has been applied to large-scale societal challenges such as homelessness, social and environmental justice, and climate change. 

Because of its focus on social dynamics within and across scenes of collective labor, activity theory has often been applied in studies of Work-Integrated Learning (WIL). This work has taken place globally—and WIL researchers who use activity theory across the globe need a way to network with each other so we can continue developing activity theory to best address scenes of work. 

The University West- Center for Activity Theory fills that role. Here, we host events and disseminate publications applying activity theory to WIL, strengthening the global research community.
