Welcome to the Web 2.0 Sampler at the Madison Conference

Welcome to the Web 2.0 Sampler at the 23rd Annual Distance Teaching and Learning Conference in Madison, Wisconsin. We look forward to sharing with you some of the exciting new Web 2.0 technologies that can be used to enable and facilitate distance teaching and learning.

This is a full-day workshop for faculty, instructional technologists, designers, and others interested in Web 2.0, showcasing innovative uses of technology and innovative approaches to pedagogy in distance teaching and learning. We will focus on identifying principles of good practice in the application of these technologies. Hands-on work with the Web 2.0 applications will be emphasized. This session will be highly interactive. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of a variety of new and emerging technologies and their application to the online learning environment.
