Web 2.0: Addressing Institutional Barriers
Workshop Web Page:
Brian Kelly, UKOLN and Lawrie Phipps, JISC
Many institutions have an interest in exploiting Web 2.0 technologies in order to provide richer networked services in areas such as teaching and learning, research or administration. However the enthusiasm which delegates may have after hearing about innovations taking place elsewhere often wains on returning to work and encountering a variety of barriers to the use of such technologies.
This workshop session will review the barriers which we may face and will outline a model and strategies which can be be used in order to address such barriers.
Learning Objectives:
By the end of the session participants will:
  • have a better undersstanding of the barriers that they may face within their institutions when attempting to implement Web 2.0 technologies;
  • have outlined a strategy with which to tackle these barriers.
