Pre-university education TISP - train the teacher
Pre-university education TISP
Teacher in-service program
Train Volunteers
–
IEEE Section / Society / Chapter Members
–
Teachers and Instructors
Using approved lesson plans from portal
IEEE members will develop and conduct TISP
training sessions with teachers
Teachers use ideas / lessons in classroom
www.ieee.org/teacherinservice
Get involved – TISP
Get your community involved - Plan a TISP event
Organise a TISP road show
Train local teachers on use of a specific lesson plan
Create a lesson plan based on your technical expertise
Pre-university education –
EPICS
Engineering Projects in Community Service
University and high-school students to work on
engineering-related projects for local area
humanitarian organizations
The need
–
Community service organizations need help from those
with technical backgrounds to use technology to deliver
their services.
–
This encourage young students to pursue engineering
study.

The team are constructing a wind turbine on campus to
power recreational lights and educate the community about
wind energy and environmental sustainability.
Pre-university informal education IEEE Low Cost Exhibits
Create low cost museum exhibits for science and
technology centers targeted for teachers, parents
and students ages 8-18 that can be replicated in
museums around the world
Pre-university informal education IEEE Spark!

Promote competition –
‘Ignite a Spark!’ submit
pictures of student outcomes
from an activity listed in prior
edition. Announced soon, be
prepared!
University education
activities for educators and students
University education Standards
Objective: promote use of standards in universities
Education standards eMagazine:
– OpenStand
– e-Health Standards
– Communications & Networking Standards
– Focus on Standards Education in China (2012, vol 2, no 2)
– The Smart Grid
Case studies
Practical ideas from professors
http://www.ieee.org/education_careers/education/standards/index.html
University education Curriculum guidelines
Objective: share good practice on curriculum
Curriculum Guidelines define what topics should
be in specific curriculum
Case studies on how they can be used
Example: The Computer Society has many
curricular definitions
Participate
- these can be specialized for
specific countries / programs and submitted for
‘Recognition’ by the society
http://www.computer.org/portal/web/education/Curricula
University education Portal trystandards.org
Get involved – Standards education
Subject matter experts sought - work to create
tutorials and case studies of the application of
standards. IEEE honorariums are now available.
Contact [email protected]
Grants to undergraduate and graduate students to
help with graduate and capstone design projects
with an industry standards component
($500US for students, with additional honoraria for
faculty mentors).
University informal education IBM-IEEE Smarter Planet Challenge
Joint IEEE/IBM competition for current students to
develop projects for future students to:
– Demonstrate applications of technical, business and legal
principles that solve real-world problems based on IBM’s
Smarter Planet Challenge
– Encourages students to work together in multi-disciplinary
teams
You’ve still got time!
– Application deadline: 1 October 2014
