Elizabeth Greene wrote a brilliant article, "Designing Learning with Purpose in Mind." Elizabeth has over two decades of experience as a Senior Director of global learning and organizational development to help reinvent corporate training programs. Thanks to her many years of experience in eLearning strategy, Elizebeth's piece takes a knowledgeable look at some key topics, including:

Infusing Empathy with Training
Elizabeth's main takeaway':
"To be an effective organization that designs learning with purpose in mind, it is important to have empathy, to listen and engage with learners to provide learning that matters and adds value. L&D should be in the trenches, learning how to support and develop people and teams. This involves learning how people get better at their jobs, how they solve problems, and how they create hyper-personalized learning experiences at the learner's point of need. Our job is enabling learners to explore moments of inquiry and curiosity to fuel their passion and create true moments of purpose."
