Just the shear magnitude of the number of apps that faculty are coming to us with on a weekly basis and wanting support for is daunting.At Marist, we have been seeking strategies that will allow us to identify those Web 2.0 apps with the greatest potential to support instructional innovation and thereby enhance the teaching and learning process.So, my presentation will focus opn the deployment strategies that weve found to be successful over the past year or soWeb 2.0 is a constantly moving target so our strategies are always changing and evolvingso Im also going to be particular interested in hearing from all of as to the types of strategies youve used.Start at a high level by discussing one of the overarching themes of our strategy which is a focus on innovationWe Project initiated to address a pedagogical problem associated with delivering Marist online courses to students in our study aboard programProject Outcomes to highlight: Students were more actively engaged within their communitiesthese quests pushed them to interact with people they would not have if the project was not done. They also benefited greatly from hearing about the same topics/issues from their peers in other countries.</p></li></ul>
