Applications of Activity Theory  

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. 

Activity Theory and Work Integrated Learning

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), the overall profile of University West.

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