ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article is to propose a theoretical framework for collective learning in collaborative governance. We first discussed characteristics of collaborative governance as a mechanism of group learning. We then applied and revised the transactive memory system theory as the behavioral basis for group learning in the context of collaborative governance. Facing the theoretical challenge that learning in collaborative governance must deal with the two contrasting forces of specialization and integration of knowledge, we applied the three knowledge boundary theory that includes syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic boundaries, and then expanded transactive memory system to transactive value system and to transactive experience system. We named the comprehensive framework as transactive cognition system and proceeded to discuss preconditions, moderating factors, and outcomes of a transactive cognition system in collaborative governance. Finally we suggested that the theoretical framework can also be applied to learning in ad-hoc committee and policy advocacy coalitions.
