Recently, developments under the banners of Science/Research 2.0 have received a lot of attention in the scientific community. Along with Web 2.0 tools and technologies, a certain change in researcher practices can be observed. The study proposed for this paper was conducted to gain first insight into these practices among researchers in Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). We conducted two focus groups with a total of 14 participants from the domains of knowledge management and e-learning. Only a limited amount of Science 2.0 practices were identified, mostly related to research design and publication. Potentials for support, however, exist in all steps of the TEL research process. We conclude that tools and technologies must either support existing practice to provide a benefit, or solve obvious shortcomings in existing practice.
