Candace Thille, a leading expert in learning science and education technology, has taken a leave of absence from Stanford University to be Amazon’s director of learning science and engineering, according to Inside Higher Ed.  Thille — who is the founding director of the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University — is to work with Amazon’s Global Learning Development Team to enhance workplace learning for employees, though a company spokesperson told Inside Higher Ed that Thille is “taking time away” to work on another project she is “not really at liberty to discuss.”
