We will be offering a tutorial as part of NI2009, titled ‘How to Weave Web 2.0 Applications for Nursing Informatics and Healthcare Professional Education’.  Among the subjects that will be explored from a hands-on, as well as theoretical, perspective, will be:

•   the basic format, function, and use of blogs.
•   the potential use of blogs in education, professional development, and virtual conference participation.
•   readily available Free/Libre/Open-Source Software (FLOSS).
•   creating RSS feeds by using a source, such as Feedburner.
•   the basic set-up, purpose, and use of podcasts.
•   using podcasts in education, professional development, personal use, and virtual conference participation.
•   creating a YouTube video for your professional use.
•   creating a “team NI2009 conference” wiki.
•   using the “peer-to-peer” Skype application.
•   exploring “mash-ups” and “widgets” are and how they may be used online.
•   discuss ideas about how to access core web-based systems via mobile devices (eg, iPhones)

– and probably lots more. Watch the NI2009 website for tutorial information and how to sign up if you want to participate.

Some of us will be at NI2009 in person (www.ni2009.org – the 10th International Congress on Nursing Informatics in Helsinki, Finland on 28 June – 1 July 2009). We hope we can bring others in virtually to present and participate, but that depends on the technology available at the event.

We know of at least 4 submissions that we have been successful in having accepted for presentation:

1. a paper on 3D virtual worlds in professional nursing education, lead by Margaret;

2. a panel on Web 2.0 for nursing informatics and professional development, lead by Peter;

3. a workshop on personal health records (PHR), lead by Scott; and

4. a tutorial, again lead by Margaret, titled ‘How to Weave Web 2.0 Applications for Nursing Informatics and Healthcare Professional Education’.

More news in coming months on our plans for Helsinki – come and join us!
