As technology continues to advance, STEM education is more needed. With the extensive technical expertise of its 400,000-plus members and volunteers, IEEE is a leader in engineering and technology education. Its technical societies and its councils, sections, and regional groups offer educational events and resources at every level to support the technical professions and prepare tomorrow’s workforce.
IEEE offers many ways to support the educational needs of students. For preuniversity students, the organization offers summer camps and other opportunities to explore careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. IEEE continuing education courses allow professionals to stay current with technology, keep their skills sharp, and learn new things.
From April 2nd to 8th, IEEE is highlighting resources available to students, educators, and technical professionals during IEEE Education Week. The annual celebration highlights the educational opportunities provided by the world’s largest technical professional association and its many organizational units, societies and councils.
Here are some of the events and resources available during this year’s Education Week.
Climate Change: IEEE’s Role in Delivering Technology Solutions to Meet the Challenge
April 3, noon to 1 pm EDT
IEEE President and CEO Saifur Rahman kicked off Education Week with a session on how the organization can serve as a vital link between policymakers and the engineering and technology communities in bringing technological solutions to meet the general challenge of climate change. Rahman plans to share how IEEE is committed to helping mitigate the effects of climate change through pragmatic and accessible technical solutions, as well as by providing engineers and technologists with a neutral space for discussion and action. The webinar also addresses the importance of educating energy workers.
April 3, 9 to 10 am EDT
IEEE REACH (Raising Engineering Awareness through the Conduit of History) provides teachers with resources to help them explain the history of technology and the roles that engineers play. In this webinar, participants will learn how REACH can enhance the classroom experience.
Do This, Not That! Applying Multimedia Learning Principles to Your Online Module/Presentation to Enhance Understanding
April 5, 11 to 11:45 am EDT
Many people share their expertise on TikTok, Youtube and other online platforms. When sharing knowledge in a multimedia-rich environment, there are research-proven principles that can be used to enhance the presentation—which in turn promotes knowledge transfer. This webinar is designed to show participants how to apply the principles to their presentations.
