I am interested in creating an introductory course that is delivered using web 2.0 technologies , something along the lines of “Web2.0 for teaching learning and research”. This course would be aimed at a HE environment and ideally would would:
a) allow pedagogical experimentation in this area
b) look at how Web2.0 technologies can be harnessed in this way
c) introduce these technologies to people within the university (e.g. blogs, RSS, social bookmarks etc) so that perhaps the potential advantages of these technologies can be demonstrated.
d) investigate how the use of the technologies can facilitate a PLE like environment that is both durable after a course such as this and after a PHd/ a period of work at an institution.
I am interested to hear other people’s views on this type of course
