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
Learning engineering should be on the radar of digital learning professionals who want to stay ahead of the curve on trends. This research report, Learning Engineering: A Primer, by Ellen Wagner, PhD, explores how this emerging discipline is expected to impact the L&D industry.
