Concordians teach teachers about Web 2.0
John Bentley, Program Coordinator and Instructional Developer at Concordia’s Centre for Teaching and Learning Services, and Alexandre Enkerli, Sociology and Anthropology Instructor, are featured on the University Affairs web site for sharing how professors can teach using Web 2.0.
Although the term Web 2.0 suggests a new version of the internet, it refers to cumulative changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the web. University Affairs is a magazine for and about Canada’s university community produced by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.
The pair has over 45 minutes of video on the site, broken into five segments, explaining the origin of Web 2.0 and how its evolution has made its way into the classroom.
They also give a nod to the challenges of keeping professors and staff up-to-date with technology, the legalities of social media with respect to privacy, and using blended learning in the classroom.
