An Overview of Learning Engineering

In this video, Kumar Garg, managing director at Schmidt Futures, will explain what learning engineering is and why it’s so important to safely collect data, analyze data, and iterate based on what you learn. As Garg notes, learning engineering requires us to humbly admit that we don’t know everything there is to know about how students learn. But at the same time, he argues that educators can do a lot to learn about learning! When individuals think from a learning engineering perspective, you’re constantly planning systematic ways to test your own assumptions about how your tool works and then making changes based on what you learn.
