Abstract


The purpose of this study was to assess how nursing faculty at a southeastern university use Web 2.0 tools in their personal lives and for educational purposes. Current Web 2.0 tools are technology, software, and the Internet. Those tools allow users to share, create, collaborate and/or publish web-based content. The use of Web 2.0 shapes the practice of scholarship in education by creating an environment which enhances the teaching/learning process. Limited empirical data, however, exists describing the use of Web 2.0 among nursing faculty. The results of this study at one southeastern university will be used for faculty and curriculum development in order to meet the needs of current and future nurses. This study was conducted as part of a larger multisite study being coordinated by the principal investigators at another university.
