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
