This is an Innovative Practice Full Paper.Engineering education research has often tended to focus onsubject matter and effective pedagogy. Lacking is researchilluminating the learning process itself and development oflearning skills in engineering students. This paper presents aframework for engineering learner development that leveragesprocesses allowing learners to learn more effectively, i.e.,learning to learn engineering. Components include: engineeringknowledge forms and levels; relationships between engineeringknowledge and performance; risk factors; learner characteristicsthat produce working expertise; cultural shifts supportinglearner development, and a model for the engineering learningprocess. Two case studies show how these components guidecurricular implementation of learning to learn engineering.
