Social Media in the Workplace webinar

This looks like an interesting session on implementing social media in the workplace. Obviously there won’t be much detail, but for newbies its probably a good starting point. The link is to a Facebook page so I’m not sure whether you need to be a member of Facebook to register for the webinar.

Leveraging Social Media Tools to Improve Workplace Learning

Wednesday, 31 March 2010, 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (U.S. & Canada)

People are communicating, collaborating, and learning in new ways. Building communities powered by social media provides a way to blend formal and informal learning into an integrated method for overall performance improvement. However, social media is often misunderstood. Professional networking features and user-generated content/Web 2.0 features are easy to develop but bring additional challenges around how to make social media work. This session will explore how organizations can use social media tools to improve learning in the workplace. Attendees will learn:

  • How social media has changed the way we communicate and collaborate
  • How social media can support overall performance improvement
  • Tips for building productive communities of practice

NOTE: Audio for this session will be provided using VoIP. You will require headphones or speakers connected to your computer to hear this presentation.
