What is ICICLE?

IEEE ICICLE is a volunteer professional organization committed to the development of Learning Engineering as a profession and as an academic discipline. ICICLE is part of the IEEE Standards Association’s (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections (IC) program. ICICLE stands for IC Industry Consortium on Learning Engineering.

Monthly meetings are the third Wednesday of the month. The next meeting is Wednesday, December 14th  at 12 pm ET here.  Check out the Novembeer 2022 Newsletter.

What is Learning Engineering?

Learning Engineering is a process and practice that applies the learning sciences using human-centered engineering design methodologies and data-informed decision making to support learners and their development.

What does ICICLE do?

Since its inception in 2017 ICICLE has evolved into a suite of opportunities for Learning Engineers to explore the range of technical, scientific, and policy matters around learning engineering as a process, practice and profession.

ICICLE holds monthly meetings (third Wednesday each month at 12:00 ET) where we engage with guest speakers who share their work in or related to learning engineering. Special Interest Groups on Design, Competencies and Curriculum, Tools, Higher Education and Corporate meet monthly to  exchange ideas to apply and implement learning engineering and develop tools. ICICLE regularly participates on learning conferences across academia, government, industry and non-profit to talk about how learning engineering process improves and enhances learning experiences. Two learning engineering conferences have been held. The first learning engineering conference was in 2019 with participants across sectors to discuss the trends across the field and the second in 2022.
