Making Web 2.0 Work for You
- The Old School Board, Leeds
- 28 October 2009 09:00-16:05
This all day event will feature specialists in the delivery of Technology Enhanced Learning from across the country. The event is sponsored by the Higher Education Academy – Physical Sciences Centre and will concentrate on Web 2.0 applications in Learning and Teaching within Higher Education.
As teaching content and materials continue to move out of the controlled University Virtual Learning Environment and onto the wider web, educators face new challenges and opportunities for innovation. The current Web 2.0 technologies are based on the idea that users generate content within established web environments, and the possibilities for teaching and learning applications are boundless.
This workshop will focus on the important issues, concerns and implications that arise when your teaching practice leaves the safety of the classroom. How can the physical sciences embrace Web 2.0 technology and the related aspects of social networking on today’s internet? You’ll see and discuss examples of practice from the field and gain new insight into how you might integrate new techniques and technologies into your own teaching.
