The 20-minute microlearning, on-demand module provides anyone responsible for training, coaching or developing with tools to nurture inclusivity and belonging.
The Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network (LTEN) is proud to introduce a unique new microlearning module for its LTEN eLearning Lounge, spotlighting building inclusive learning experiences. The new module, “Creating Inclusive Learning Experiences,”.
The 20-minute, self-paced, on-demand module was developed in partnership with Metrix for training professionals as well as those responsible for talent development, human resource training, diversity and inclusions officers broadly. The learning experience combines personal experiences with proven strategies, providing training professionals with techniques to incorporate principles of diversity, inclusion and belonging into training sessions, either in-person or virtual. The module includes a participant job aid and a coaching tool.
The new module is part of the 15-module eLearning Lounge, a self-guided microlearning series focus on key principles of learning and development within pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and diagnostics organizations. The new Creating Inclusive Learning Experiences is not specific to life sciences nor limited to professional trainers, and instead focuses on the interactions and scenarios that happen inside traditional learning settings or in informal coaching, onboarding or training situations.
Other features of the module include:
Simple, focused and self-paced to target the trainer and their role in creating inclusive learning experiences.
Provides strategies and tactics to create and promote diversity, inclusion and belonging in all training sessions.
Identifies the root causes and the potential impact on learning when core principles are not present.
Encourages continued learning and education to support diversity, inclusion and belonging.
Complements a broad range of educational approaches and learners.
Planning tools help users self-reflect and put the module into action.

Learning is designed to be an inclusive, shared experience that helps all people equally, and we’re proud to help our members continue their work to build the most agile, most productive and most inclusive work environments for the benefit of employees, customers and patients.”
