Learning science is always advancing, yielding new insights about how people gain and retain knowledge and skills. How can classroom teachers keep up—and even conduct their very own research to improve their instruction, day-by-day and week-by-week?

We dig into these questions and more in this week’s episode of the EdSurge Podcast. It was recorded during a panel discussion about the learning engineering movement that was held last month at the ISTELive 21 conference.

The conversation explores why and how educators can improve their instruction—and their students' learning outcomes—throughout the school year, in ways both formal and informal, and using both special digital technology and low-tech tools.

Our guests were:

  • Aigner Picou, program director for The Learning Agency Lab
  • Neil Heffernan, a computer science professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute
  • Callie Lowenstein, program manager for the Learning by Scientific Design effort at Deans for Impact
