What is ICICLE?

ICICLE is an open forum and community-driven platform for defining and supporting the profession of Learning Engineering.

Participating Organizations


Who are we?

IEEE ICICLE — a 24 month activity running December 2017 to December 2019 — is part of the IEEE Standards Association’s (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections (IC) program. Participation in ICICLE is widespread and is comprised of leading organizations in industry, academia, and government. The Industry Connections Program helps incubate new standards and related products and services by facilitating collaboration among organizations and individuals as they hone and refine their thinking on rapidly changing technologies.

As innovative teachers, schools, and training departments deploy an ever-expanding array of new products and explore new ways of teaching and learning, the body of knowledge about how to use these technologies and how to design the increasingly complex information systems that result is the basis for a new engineering discipline.
— Avron Barr, Chair of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee
