Abstract: The recent innovation of Web 2.0 as a pedagogical tool in tertiary institutions challenges the designer/academic as to how to structure the training and implementation of the technologies. Utilising a 4-phase process, of devising, developing, delivering and documenting, which encompasses a program that clearly identifies three phases of skill and knowledge development, the University of Western Sydney, Australia, has embarked on transforming the teaching and learning within the School of Education. Starting with gaining a clear knowledge of the level of use and knowledge of Web 2.0 through surveys and focus groups the specific program of skills and knowledge is developed to enhance the teaching and learning with in the Master of Teaching (primary) degree.
