Web2practice will be running a workshop at the UCISA masterclass on Fresh ideas for successful IT training at Oxford University on 9 December 2009. This event will share best practice in IT training for staff and/or students in higher education.
Our session will outline the opportunities and challenges for training providers with the emergence of an ever-increasing range of web 2.0 technologies. It is often assumed that such technologies are intuitive, but does that mean no formal training or guidance is required? Where should new users begin? What is the best tool for a particular purpose? What do they need to know to use these in practice? And what are the risks?
The web2Practice guides aim to support an approach to web2.0 training that is more about inspiration and motivation than what buttons to press. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore these guides in a practical session and to discuss how they could be used in practice.
