This paper introduces design patterns for cross-cultural computer-supported collaborative design learning. It presents four patterns derived from an in-depth analysis of interactions between Hong Kong and Korean distributed teams and a cross-cultural comparison of interactions within these teams to interactions in Hong Kong/Austrian and Hong Kong/Taiwanese teams. The first part of the paper shortly reports on the methodology for identifying and articulating the patterns. The second part introduces the pattern collection and four full design patterns. The design patterns concentrate on design solutions that resolve breakdowns in the collaborative interaction between those cultures.
