About

Members of the IEEE IC Industry Consortium on Learning Engineering recognized learning engineering as an extension of existing professions and the need for tools to help people and organizations benefit from emerging multidisciplinary practices. The Learning Engineering Toolkit™ is envisioned as a set of practical tools and resources to help professionals (engineers and non-engineers) apply learning engineering principles to their work. 

This initial project seeds that toolkit with a simple set of game-based learning cards centered on key learning sciences findings that can be applied through learning engineering. Professionals engaged in learning engineering must draw on key findings from the learning sciences. It is valuable for everyone developing learning experiences and conditions for great learning be familiar with some key truths about how people learn. 

A prototype of the cards was "play tested" at the first IEEE ICICLE Conference on Learning Engineering in Arlington, VA. The cards will be further developed and refined based on that feedback and collaborative development after the conference. (People involved with this campaign self-funded production of the prototype. The design and development was a volunteer effort.)

Initial funding will be used to produce at-least 1,000 decks of the next iteration of those cards and make them available to the public as an inaugural public release. Funding that exceeds the goal will become seed funding to support cost of design and development of other tools for the Learning Engineering Toolkit, and to iteratively refine and replenish tools as demand warrants.

Risks and challenges

The "play test" of the self-funded prototype at the ICICLE Conference will be evaluated for insights on viability, value, and iterative improvement. An additional round of volunteer work (iterative design refinement, testing, production, and logistics) will be needed in June-July to meet projected delivery dates.

At this point everyone involved has "day jobs" that take priority over this volunteer effort, including those involved directly with the kickstarter campaign and others contributing to the design effort. People involved are contributing out of good will and a belief that wider adoption of learning engineering mindsets and practices will improve education and training and opportunity for many. However, contributor availability is uncertain.
