Blogs, wikis, RSS, Second Life, Facebook and more……The tools of web 2.0 are what Millenials use in their daily lives, from collaborating to socializing. Integrated into classroom instruction, they can support and reinforce learning objectives. In addition, the Library is uniquely positioned to offer general workshops on use of Web 2.0 tools for faculty, university staff, library colleagues, and students.
In this discussion session, we will cover two separate aspects of Instruction 2.0:
- Tips and techniques for teaching students, faculty and staff how to use these new tools, and
- How the tools themselves can be utilized to enhance student learning in library/information resource instruction.
Note: This session is not intended to be a primer on Web 2.0 technologies. Familiarity with Web 2.0 concepts and resources is assumed.
