Fulton Schools of Engineering Education Seminars (SEEdS) – Learning Engineering: Creating impact with inclusive learning systems
Guest Speaker: Dr. Scotty Craig, ASU
Zoom: Register here and join.
This talk will introduce the audience to the learning engineering area and the learning engineering process. We will end with a discussion of our Learning Engineering Action Pods (LEAP) structure with examples from our Generative AI LEAP, and how faculty can get involved. The learning engineering area is a multidisciplinary area that combines learning sciences, design sciences, and engineering processes to create effective learning ecosystems that meet modern challenges within educational environments. This discussion will be grounded in current learning engineering work being conducted at ASU including work in the new Learning Engineering Institute (LEI). The institute’s goal is to empower faculty and support staff to conduct research that advances inclusion-based research to benefit all students by enhancing learning experiences and to enable proactive intervention by using existing data. We do this by weaving four major threads of data, assessment, technology, and inclusion into our solutions. LEI’s impact is based on enabling faculty, staff, and student voices through interactions within LEAPs.
Dr. Scotty Craig is an Associate Professor of Human Systems Engineering at Arizona State University, Director of Research and Evaluation for the ASU Learning Engineering Institute, and Director of the Arizona State University DoD Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative Partnership Laboratory. He has a dual affiliation with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. Dr. Craig is a learning engineer with expertise in cognitive science, design science, and the science of learning (specifically learning technology). He has contributed widely in the intersecting areas of Psychology, education, and technology with over 150 contributions to the areas of multimedia and virtual learning environments, as well as the development and evaluation of learning technology such as Intelligent Tutoring Systems within laboratory and applied settings.
