About Learning Engineering 

Learning Engineering is an emerging field that applies science, technology, and pedagogy to produce the most effective learning experience. It is an approach to teaching and learning that focuses on engineering an environment to encourage, motivate, and enhance learning. Philosophically, we focus on what the student needs to master content rather than what the institution needs to deliver. Learning Engineering as a profession is supported by the IEEE SIG, ICICLE

The origins of Learning Engineering go as far back as the 1940s with Information Theory. During 1950s, Dr. B. F Skinner, the father of behavioral psychology, described how to influence people through reinforcement. In his fictional book Walden Two, he depicts a utopian society engineered to reinforce good behavior. His theories have been instrumental in therapy as well as in Gaming Theory. Other researchers, such as Piaget, investigated the value of exploration and play in learning. Dr. Gordon Pask, a cybernetician, focused on the importance of conversations between human and robotic entities. Dr. Herb Simon concentrated on AI assistants and Dr. Papert on the value of constructing environments as part of the learning process. 

Learning Engineering draws from the fields of Psychology, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Philosophy, Engineering, Anthropology, Education, Writing, Art, and others. It is the blend of all the fields that contribute knowledge towards building a better learning experience.
