ILTA Roadshow – Topic Description
SharePoint: A Social Network for Learning
With SharePoint 2010 being deployed in law firms at a record pace, My Sites are all the rage for their enterprise social networking capabilities. But did you know that there is also a new school of thought on intranets from a learning and development perspective? As intranets are re-examined in preparation for SharePoint 2010, it’s looking more and more like SharePoint will be the learning portal, if not the learning center of the future. In this session we will examine how law firms are already making use of SharePoint for learning and development, the role of enterprise social networking in learning management, and the future of SharePoint as a social network for learning.  Michael Barshinger, founder and CEO of Profisciencé Partners, will be presenting this topic and Theresa Lundquist, Chief Learning Officer for Profisciencé Partners, will join him in this thought provoking discussion.
