I’ve argued in the past that we should treat learning design seriously, with the depth of rocket science applied as a learning engineering.

Content engineering

Clark Quinn

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.

Learning Engineering

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. Is learning engineering an alternative to instructional design?

Over-engineered for information transfer, under-engineered for learning

Clive on Learning

Socio-cultural engineering?

Clark Quinn

Ok, social engineering and cultural engineering have bad connotations in a number of ways. Yet, if I can talk about learning engineering, the desirable properties of cultures for learning, and moves in that direction, aren’t we really talking about socio-cultural engineering? So, if we’re choosing cultural values, and working towards them, both in ways that reflect what science tells us about doing our best, aren’t we really doing such engineering?
