The Learning Engineer is DEAD? Long LIVE! the Learning Engineer?
May 20, 2023
While I'm panicking over what to actually take in the site formally known as Lynda.com - that'll help with the AI'ifcation, specifically in learning analytics.
I guess the job title "Learning Engineer" has gone flop, but the idea that you can still do "data-driven learning outcomes", and I'm hoping Megan's new book "Data and Analytics for Instructional Designers" to figure out if I need to learn Python to participate in meaningful analytics. And then SHE says to also read "Measurement Demystified" (available in O'Reilly, 1/2 way through), and then "Learning Analytics" (not in O'Reilly).
Unless the BIG LXDs are already doing it? (my previous employer got Docebo, but then NOT "Learning Analytics" just "Learning Impact" ggrr). So maybe we don't have to learn generative or deep or machine learning (like learning how to do Python to ply information from training data)..? And I should figure out how to be a "Prompt Engineer" instead?
As anyone seen ANYTHING about AI in T&D or L&D or LxD yet? Have the Support Groups started yet? Maybe they're in Linked Groups...
