During an intensive curriculum redesign process, a variety of cognitive tools were developed to support faculty. Cognitive tools served as a form of support for thinking on the individual task level and metacognitive level, as well as on the group sociocommunicative level. Using cognitive tools in collaboration with a group allowed faculty with varying levels of expertise and experience to contribute in valuable ways to social knowledge construction. Recommendations for developing and using cognitive tools in faculty workplace learning situations are included.
