JISC Web 2.0 and policy http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/programme_digital_repositories/project_web2_and_policy.aspx  

[from the web site] The study will provide a set of recommendations for the JISC, institutions, and teachers on the effective use of Web 2.0 technologies for sharing content for teaching and learning.  This will be achieved by desk research building on JISC funded and other work already undertaken, and widespread consultation across the community through an online workshop. The desk research will look at both existing practice and institutional policies which can facilitate or inhibit the use of Web 2.0 technologies to share content. In order to provide a focus for the workshop we will publish the results of our desk research together with any interim conclusions and the issues that we believe that the workshop needs to address. The workshop will have specific a focus each day to ensure that all the important issues are addressed.
