Is Learning Engineering the Next Big Thing?

The traditional ID role is evolving to include more emphasis on science and data.

The term learning engineering was coined more than 50 years ago by Herbert Simon, a Nobel Laureate and Carnegie Mellon professor. Today there is renewed interest in the discipline, which merges scientific methods and engineering principles with learning. This research report, Learning Engineering: A Primer, by Ellen Wagner, PhD, explores how learning engineering is expected to impact L&D.

Specifically, the report explores:

  • The evolving role of today’s instructional designer
  • A definition of learning engineering, according to different thought leaders
  • Key players and initiatives surrounding learning engineering
  • New skills required by those interested in pursuing the discipline
  • Educational and enterprise opportunities
