This paper sets out the university’s policy for the use of social software for learning. It provides a case study of an institutional exemplar and efforts to generate and control change such as technological and pedagogic change. It highlights the university’s commitment to using social software as a key means to enhance learning, teaching and assessment. In line with the university’s learning, teaching and assessment strategy, this policy will develop the use of social networking software to support students in learning, teaching and assessment. In developing this policy, the university aims to: 1) improve students’ learning experiences by raising the academics’ awareness of social software; 2) encourage and support the embedding of social software across all aspects of the curriculum in the university; 3) highlight the key issues and considerations for using social software in learning, teaching and assessment.
