When taking an ecosystem approach for learning and development, Clark Quinn describes in Get Ready for Learning Engineering how learning engineering could support the integration of its components in his monthly column, Quinnsights, in Learning Solutions.
Two major advances are changing the nature of eLearning. One is emerging technology that has potential applications to learning. The other is the understanding of how we learn, and what we as L&D professionals should do to instruction to better align. At the intersection is a need to integrate the two to create optimal learning experiences. This has led to a call for learning engineering. While not new, and the principles equally apply to existing technologies like the LMS and traditional learning, the opportunities and the need are increasing. What does learning engineering mean in principle and in practice?
