  • IEEE and You

    Dr. Tefilo J. Ramos, Vice President, IEEE Educational Activities Dr. Douglas Gorham, Managing Director, IEEE Educational Activities

    Teacher In Service Program Training WorkshopGuayaquil, Ecuador10 November 2009

  • A Few Words about IEEEIEEE is the largest professional engineering association in the world 375,000 members in 160 countriesA non-profit organization incorporated in New York

    Originally concentrating on power engineering and communications IEEE at present spans technical interests across the spectrum of technologyFrom nanotechnology to oceanic engineering

    In many respects IEEE has become the steward of Engineering worldwide

  • IEEE at a GlanceMore than 375,000 members in more than 160 countries; 45 percent of whom are from outside the United States more than80,000 student members 329 sections in ten geographic regions worldwide 1,860 chapters that unite local members with similar technical interests 1,789 student branches in 80 countries 483 student branch chapters at colleges and universities 390 affinity groups -- IEEE Affinity Groups are non-technical sub-units of one or more Sections or a Council. The Affinity Group patent entities are Consultants' Network, Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD), Women in Engineering (WIE) and Life Members (LM)

  • What is IEEE?A membership organization

    A major creator and guardian of technical Intellectual Property

    A mechanism to bring people of common technical interests together both geographically and disciplinarily

    A guardian of the future of Engineering

    An implementer of technology-related public imperatives

  • What does IEEE do?Annually publishes 144 transactions, journals and magazines in engineering, technology and computing

    Sponsors over 950 conferences each year

    Develops technical standardsApproximately 900 standards currently

    Gets engineers and technologists from different locations together

  • What does IEEE do? ContdOrganizes and supports professional activities among engineering students

    Educates the public about Engineering

  • Core ValuesService to humanity: leveraging technology and engineering to benefit human welfare; promoting public awareness and understanding of the engineering profession. Global focusTrust and respectGrowth and nurturing of the profession: encouraging education as a fundamental activity of engineers, scientists, and technologists at all levels and at all times; ensuring a pipeline of students to preserve the profession. Collaboration and community buildingProfessionalismIntellectual activityPeer-reviewed

  • IEEE volunteersKey to IEEE success About 40,000 individuals who give at least 4 hours a week to the organizationLocal Section ChairAssociate editor of a JournalMember of the Financial Committee of the Technical Activities BoardChair of a committee that develops a StandardStudent Branch Chair

    The organization is run by volunteersFrom the President and CEO to the local Section Chair major decisions are made by volunteersAn attempt to quantify the work done by volunteers estimated $2000m-$3000m

  • Where am I needed at IEEE?

    How about Educational Activities?

  • Teacher In-Service Program

    How to get involved: Attend a train the trainer workshop like you are doing here to learn: tips and strategies on how to organize teacher workshops in your area connect with local schoolsdevelop hands-on activities that teach engineering and engineering design concepts

  • lets visitors explore how to:Prepare for a career in engineering, computing and technology Find accredited programs in engineering, computing and technology, Search student opportunities, Play interactive games, Find lesson plansand more. How to get involved: Submit an Engineer or student profile in any engineering, computing or technology discipline Suggest ideas for lesson plans Submit a student opportunity for summer programs, internships, etc.

  • TryEngineering ProgressUsage Statistics (as of 01 Nov 2009)2.5 MILLION HITS IN 2007 4.5 MILLION HITS IN 2008 4.0 MILLION HITS so far in 200950,114 = average # of visitors per month 104,272 = highest number of total unique visitors (Oct 09)280,082 = average # of page hits per month10,095 = average number of university searches per month14,922 = average lesson plan downloads per month38 minutes = average time users spend on siteVisitors come from the US, China, Canada, India, Germany and scores of other countries

    Enhance the level of technological literacy of pre-university educators

    Encourage pre-university students to pursue technical careers, including engineering

    Increase the general level of technological literacy of pre-university students

    Increase the level of understanding of the needs of educators among the engineering community

    Identify ways that engineers can assist schools and school systems

  • Teacher In-Service Program ProgressTo date, over 126 TISP presentations have been conducted by IEEE volunteersTISP presentations have reached over 3000 pre-university educators. This reach represents more than 330,000 students each academic yearPresentations have taken place in at least 12 countriesAt least seven (7) countries in Region 9!

  • The Teacher In Service Program (TISP)A program that trains IEEE volunteers to work with pre-university teachers

    Based on approved Lesson PlansPrepared by IEEE volunteersTested in classroomsAligned with Education StandardsDesigned to highlight engineering design principlesThe cost for the materials is $50-$100 for a class of 30

  • The Basic Approach Lesson PlansIEEE volunteers and consultants develop lesson plans that highlight an engineering design topicHow to build a balanced mobile (rotational equilibrium)How to design a sail for a ship (aerodynamic design)

    The lesson plans are geared toward pre-university teachers and their students and are tested in the classroom

    Materials are low cost

  • Volunteer TrainingKey questions to be discussed in training:How to conduct a training sessions for teachers using the TISP lesson plans?How to approach the school system to engage teachers?

    Teachers and officials from the education establishment participate in the training sessions

  • After The TrainingIEEE volunteers work with the local schools and school system to conduct training sessions for teachers Teachers use the training sessions and the lesson plans to educate their studentsIEEE participates in paying for the programIn the first year, EAB pays for the materials and supplies needed for TISP sessions for teachersIn subsequent years, funding is the responsibility of the IEEE Section and Student Branch IEEE VolunteersTeachersStudents
