Design thinking for L&D

When we’re asked to create a learning solution, how often do we think about the context within which that solution will sit? Design thinking prompts us to take a wider view, collaborating with learners and stakeholders to co-create a course or resource.

On this week’s podcast, Connie Malamed from The eLearning Coach podcast joins Ross Garner and Owen Ferguson to share her insight into design thinking.
