This paper presents the design and the implementation of a training course aiming to prepare teachers to effectively integrate Web 2.0 tools in their instruction. The program was established in the context of the Web 2.0 ERC project aiming at simplifying Web 2.0 for educational purposes. The model of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge and the Authentic Learning approach were the guiding principles that largely influenced the educational design of this teacher preparation program. This Web 2.0 instructional design framework is outlined in detail. The program outcomes and the described experience aim to offer insight into the developing programs that respond to teachers' training needs and effective preparation.
