“As learning and performance support technology has continued to evolve, becoming more complex and increasingly more sophisticated, eLearning and digital learning professionals working in education, enterprises, and agencies have recognized their need for new, more sophisticated skill sets. Among these are data visualization, programming and coding, and techniques from learning science and data analytics.”

2019 IEEE ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering
The schedule has been announced for the 2019 IEEE ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering and a program summary is now available online. The event will take place Mon, May 20, 2019, 1:00 PM — Thu, May 23, 2019, 1:30 PM EDT at George Mason University, Arlington, Virginia.
The conference on will feature sessions organized by ICICLE Special Interest Groups and will highlight the state-of-the-art in the profession and academic discipline of Learning Engineering. Early Bird tickets are available through March 29, 2019.
New Academic Program
Boston College has created a new Masters Degree in Learning Engineering.
Chris Dede, John Richards, and ICICLE Advisory Board member Bror Saxberg have edited a new book entitled: Learning Engineering for Online Education. It is described as “a comprehensive overview of the emerging field of learning engineering, a form of educational optimization driven by analytics, design-based research, and fast-paced, large-scale experimentation.”
Publish with ICICLE
All attendees of the 2019 IEEE ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering are eligible to submit papers and presentations to the post-conference Proceedings publication. See the conference page for details.
In the Media
“Despite exponential growth in the development of learning technologies, there has been relatively little support in terms of professional development for engineers designing, building, and deploying new learning technologies.”
ICICLE: A Consortium for Learning Engineering — EDUCAUSE Review
“The “learning engineer” job title has started cropping up at several institutions, spurred in part by leadership from Carnegie Mellon University, which has a one-year master’s program in learning engineering and has hired five of its own.”
Learning Engineers Inch Toward the Spotlight — Inside Higher Ed
“According to Ken Koedinger, Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University and chair of ICICLE’s SIG on the Learning Engineering Academic Curriculum: ‘In ten years, learning engineering will be a core job in educational technology companies, K-12 schools, colleges and universities.’”
2019 IEEE ICICLE Conference
The IEEE ICICLE 2019 Conference on Learning Engineering will be a gathering of professionals from industry, academia, and government featuring collaborative sessions organized by ICICLE Special Interest Groups. The event will highlight the state-of-the-art in the profession and academic discipline of Learning Engineering.
