I know it is a highly recommended practice to dry fire centerfire handguns to learn trigger control. Is the same true for AR-15s, as well? Just wondering if it would cause any damage.

Shouldn't do any damage to a decent quality center fire AR. The military has done it for many years. OTOH, rimfire guns can be damaged fairly easily by dry firing them!

Good to know, thanks. I know the trigger on mine feels very different than on my EDC. I need to practice with it quite a bit to get a feel for it.

Disclaimer: Snap caps always when dry firing. It’s the only way to be 100% sure you’re not doing any damage.

That being said, I really only use them in old guns and those known to have brittle firing pins (Spanish, Eastern European, etc). I’ve dry fired my ARs with no problem.
