Organizational Learning Engineering
JUNE 28, 2016
Not surprisingly, treating people in ways that reflect their inner nature is more rewarding for them as well as more successful for the organization. I’ve argued in the past that we should treat learning design seriously, with the depth of rocket science applied as a learning engineering. And this is a problem for organizational success. Let’s go! strategy

We’ve heard about learning engineering and while the focus is on experience design, the pragmatics include designing content to create the context, resources, and motivation for the activity. This is content engineering , and it’s a direction we need to go. And it’s time we step beyond just hardwiring this content together, and start treating it as professionals. Look at business websites these days. You can customize the content you’re searching for with filters. The content reacts to the device you’re on and displays appropriately.

And one thing that struck me was folks talking about learning engineering. If we take the analogy from regular science and engineering, we are talking about taking the research from the learning sciences, and applying it to the design of solutions. The focus of the engineering, however, is different. And if this is what Learning Engineering can be, systematically applying learning science to design, I reckon there’s also a study of learning science engineering, aligning not just the learning, but the design process, with how we think, work, and learn.
