Pete Shelton (IFPRI of the CGIAR along with his co-blogger, Stephan Dorn) has a must read post for anyone trying to introduce “web 2” tools to their work communities. He speaks of researchers here (in international agricultural research) but I believe they apply in many other settings as well. Read the whole thing… Three lessons from a year of teaching 2.0 to researchers
- Focus on the job, not the tool.
- Researchers like hearing from other researchers, not us.
- Don’t assume you know what researchers need- go out and ask them!
