ICICLE May 2022 Community Call with InnovateEDU on Blueprint for Inclusive Research and Development in Education
The ICICLE monthly community call is May 18th at 12pm ET. We’re thrilled to have Susmita Pratihast, Project Director, Shalaka Damle, Project Associate, and Erin Mote, Co-Founder and Executive Director, of InnovateEDU present the Blueprint for Inclusive Research and Development in Education (BIRD-E) developed by InnovateEDU. The Blueprint is an open-source framework that aims to modernize education research through a common, research-based data language to bridge the divide between research and practice in the K-12 data ecosystem. The common data language synchronizes research definitions, benchmarks, and metrics for evidence-supported interventions that impact student outcomes.
The goal of the framework is to facilitate engagement of all types of stakeholders in inclusive, accessible, and robust generation and use of research. Join the community call discussion on how the learning engineering process can be applied in education research.
ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering 26-28 July 2022, MIT Campus, Boston, MA USA
Registration for the in-person 2022 ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering is now open! The Conference is 26th-28th July 2022 onsite only at the Samberg Conference Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, USA.
The conference will launch Learning Engineering Toolkit, a new book on learning engineering. Interactive sessions will focus on themes in the book around learning sciences, human-centered design, engineering, instrumentation, ethics, analytics, motivation and much more.
As the number of participants at this in-person only conference is limited, we expect the conference to sell out. The early registration rate ends June 1st. Register today to connect with learning professionals in-person around learning engineering practices! You don’t want to miss it!
Talking about Learning Engineering
Bror Saxberg, founder of the recently launched learning engineering consulting firm LearningForge, LLC, and was previously the Vice President of Learning Science at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, spoke at Next Level Lab’s Distinguished Speaker Series, Harvard Graduate School of Education on Learning Engineering: The Art of Applying Learning Science to Real-World Training which explored the impact learning science, motivation, and understanding expertise has on learning and teaching to increase outcomes from professional training and development.
On Share Whatcha Learned: Journeys in Instructional Design, Kristin Torrence, Head of Learning Engineering at Talespin, shares what she’s been learning and practicing about learning engineering.

A Special Conference Track on Adaptive Learning via Interactive, Collaborative and Emotional Approaches at the Learning ideas Conference aims to provide a forum for innovations in learning engineering that have been designed to improve learners’ engagement and teachers’ experiences. The Learning ideas Conference brings together researchers and practitioners from around the world in the uses of technology to improve education and workplace learning and is taking place June 15-17, 2022
Special and Market Interest Group Work
The Special and Market Interest Groups develop resources and document experiences for the learning engineering community. Everyone is welcome to join any SIG or MIG.
- Design: The Design for Learning SIG is looking at designing and implementing across levels and populations. No meeting scheduled for May.
- Instrumentation: The Tools SIG is documenting use cases and data descriptions for learning experiences. Share ideas about learning data on Thursday, May 26th 2022 at 2pm ET. Meeting link is in the Agenda and Meeting Notes.
- Corporate: Corporate MIG (market interest group) works with L&D community on how to adapt the learning engineering process. The SIG will meet on Friday, May 27th at 11am ET. Please contact SIG Chair for more information.
- Higher Education: Higher Education MIG (market interest group) next meeting is Tuesday, June 7th 2022 at 12pm ET to explore themes of learning engineering in a higher education context. Contact the SIG chair for the Zoom link.
- Competencies: The Competencies, Curriculum, and Credentials SIG is planning to develop competencies on learning design and worked on data science tasks for learning engineers. No meeting scheduled for May.
We look forward to seeing you at the community call on May 18th to meet Susmita Pratihast, Shalaka Damle and Erin Mote of InnovateEDU to learn about the Blueprint for Inclusive Research and Development in Education and can’t to see you in-person in July.
