Abstract

Educational engineering is based on recent developments in knowledge engineering and cognitive science, two current topics in artificial intelligence. What is the contribution of knowledge engineering (and the broader field of cognitive science) to improving learning efficiency and effectiveness? And what are the implications and importance of these considerations for engineering education? Peter Drucker coined the terms efficiency (doing the right thing) in reference to business management. The terms apply as well to learning efficiency (enhancing the rate of learning and learning effectiveness (enhancing the mastery and retention of facts, concepts, and relationships).
