International Consortium for Innovation and Collaboration in Learning Engineering

2024 Conference

Solving for Complexity at Scale

Register today!

The ICICLE’s Learning Engineering conference, co-hosted with ASU Learning Engineering Institute, revolves around the overarching theme of “Solving for Complexity at Scale,” focusing on solving the implicit complexity of learning challenges at different scales, from the individual tutor to massive open online courses and everything in between.

The conference covers a blend of theoretical insights and practical applications across topics related to the learning engineering process, learning sciences, learning analytics, cognitive science, teamwork, technology innovations, and human-centered learning.Engaging sessions, such as Lightning Talks, Show and Share Presentations, Active Learning Sessions, Stations of Exploration, and Showcase Your Work, will actively involve participants and contribute to the advancement of learning engineering. This is not a ‘Sit and Get’ conference, so be ready to engage! Check out our 2022 and 2023 conferences to learn more about the sessions and structure of the conference

Our keynote speaker is Punya Mishra, Director of Innovative Learning Futures at the Learning Engineering Institute (LEI) and Professor in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University. In his role as director, he provides strategic vision around research, program development, outreach and public engagement. Prior to this he served as the Associate Dean of Scholarship & Innovation at MLFTC, he led a range of initiatives that provides a future-forward, equity driven, approach to inter/trans-disciplinary educational research. He is internationally recognized for his work in educational technology; the role of creativity and aesthetics in learning; and the application of collaborative, design-based approaches to educational innovation. An AERA Fellow (2024), TED-Ed educator (2023), he co-hosts the award-winning Silver Lining for Learning, Value Laden and Learning Futures podcasts. He is an award-winning instructor, an engaging public speaker, and an accomplished visual artist and poet.
