Web 2.0 technologies are implemented with intentions of enriching the teaching and learning experience. With their adoption comes a set of implied pedagogical practices that are often imperfectly understood by faculty as well as learners: the realities of practice may differ considerably from intended use. This session presents faculty experiences as vignettes on practice and invites participants to share in the discussion of implied practices as well as realities in using digital media in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to address four key questions in small-group dialogues on the intentions and realities associated with Web 2.0 tools.
