In this roundtable discussion, participants will have an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing conversation about factors that contribute to faculty adoption of new social media tools for teaching and learning and the implications of these practices for effective pedagogy. Faculty from a large urban research university who have engaged in sustained participation in a learning community devoted to teaching with technology will share their experiences using social media tools such as wikis, podcasts, social bookmarking, blogging, social networking sites, and Twitter in stories of engagement and disengagement in infusing Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.
