Feedback form is now closed.
The rapidly evolving technology landscape often poses challenges for organizations that have limited resources to dedicate to technology training. The LSC TIG funded “Raising the Bar” project is currently piloting a training approach that is used by private law firms to train their attorneys and support staff on technology skills that they may encounter in their day-to-day work, such as improving their proficiency using Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint and Excel). Panelists from the pilot sites will provide updates on the pilot project and discuss feedback from staff and lessons learned during the first stages of the pilot. Panelists will also discuss different training approaches and how to make them work for different types of organizations.
