Tomorrow's Classroom Ecosystem

Tomorrow's Classroom Ecosystem - Presented by TC-ILE

This webinar will introduce the new Technical Committee for Immersive Learning Environments. With the emphasis on online and digital solutions for learning, many are deciding if immersive learning environments are the right choice. What needs do immersive learning environments satisfy? How would implementation move from a prototype to a full ecosystem? What does success in these environments look like? This panel will present a range of experiences from engineering, the workplace, K-12 education, and research & corporate environments. As an Education Week presentation, you are invited to join us and share your perspective in the chat pod as well. We are planning a surprise for the end of the presentation.

Publishing in Engineering Education Journals

Publishing in Engineering Education Journals - Presented by John E. Mitchell, EiC of IEEE ToE

The aim of this session is to give participants insight into the requirements of publishing educational research work in engineering education journals with a specific focus on the IEEE Transactions on Education. It will cover the areas of work and types of papers typically considered in scope for the journal and will give guidance on what is typically expected of papers by reviewers. The audience is Engineering Academics and Education researchers looking to develop their current educational research or educational conference papers into journal articles.

Diversity Round Table

Diversity Round Table - Presented by Carina Gonzalez, EiC of IEEE RITA

Diversity has proven to be one of the keys to success for any organization, both business and research. This diversity allows the organization as a whole to be aware of the needs and concerns of its target population, thus becoming more efficient and reaching a greater number of people in its development. However, the enrollment of women in engineering has been declining every year for the last three decades. In particular, in computer engineering, the gender gap is growing. Although there are numerous initiatives to promote STEM careers among women, they do not have the expected result in increasing the presence of women in engineering. So, we must face the challenge of teacher training, both in STEM areas and in co-education.

Rediscovering, Discovering, and Repurposing Content in an OER-based Post Pandemic World

Rediscovering, Discovering, and Repurposing Content in an OER-based Post Pandemic World - Presented by Dr. Sorel Reisman

Even before March 2020, online education had become firmly entrenched in higher education - its growth accelerated from the "invention," in the early 2000s, of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). Many institutions adopted learning management systems (LMS) to enter the MOOC world, enabling instructors to voluntarily or by fiat to move their courses online. Despite the growing demand for online instruction, surveys indicated a general dissatisfaction among students, instructors, and administrators of the quality of the online offerings. The advent of the pandemic and the necessity of teaching online have highlighted the legitimacy of these concerns. One of the primary causes of the quality issue is that instructors were and continue to be ill-prepared to move to online settings. This presentation provides a step-by-step roadmap for instructors wishing to move their "conventional" curricula to the online LMS environments required by their institutions as well as expected by today's technology-wise students. The process builds upon a "traditional" course syllabus, moving it online, and enhancing it in stages through the use of Open Education Resources (OER) - primarily using features of MERLOT - the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching system.

Student Leadership Award Recipient Panel

Student Leadership Award Recipient Panel

This panel discussion is presenting Educational Activities from previous winners of the IEEE Education Society Student Leadership Award and Student Branch leaders involved in Educational activities from all Major Regions (1-6, 7, 8, 9, and 10). The main impact will be to share best practices and to create links and networks between Educational Activities inside the student branches of IEEE and to put in value the geographical and local activities of the student branches as part of the OUs of IEEE. Some important activities will be to share actions in the hybrid world where online and onsite activities are being combined from now and to the future.

Virtual Mobility Collaboration Project Workshop - Presented by Diana Andone and Mark Frydenberg

Presented as part of the IEEE Education Society's IEEE Education Week Program: "Virtual Mobility Collaboration Project Workshop"

This webinar is based on the TalkTech project https://talktechproject.net/ by Diana Andone (Politehnica University of Timisoara) and Mark Frydenberg (Bentley University), the professors that initiated and run continuously this project since 2008.  A 2h online, with examples, guidelines and actions on how to set up, develop, run and evaluate an international/national virtual mobility, between students as a project based learning activity. The webinar will encourage, hopefully inspire, but certainly give participants the tools for bringing a new dimension to their teaching activities as to design activities for students to become co-creators of education content, based on interactive artefacts, virtual & augmented reality. As in our project students creates artifacts that are used either back in education, as OERs, open education and OERs production information will be also included.

Session One: Publishing Your Research: Advice from IEEE Editors

IEEE Pathways to Academia Session One: Publishing Your Research: Advice from IEEE Editors

In 2022, the IEEE Education Society, IEEE Educational Activities, and IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu are hosting a series of interactive virtual events designed specifically for engineering, computing, and technology students interested in pursuing or professionals just starting their academic careers. The first panel session, Publishing your Research: Advice from IEEE Editors, will provide participants with first-hand advice on how to navigate the technical publication process. Publishing is a critical aspect of a professor's responsibilities that directly impacts the advancement of technical knowledge and their own career pathway. During this session, attendees will hear guidance from IEEE editors on how to choose the right journal for their paper as well as navigating the peer review process. You will learn how to submit your research, how to use the IEEE author templates, and to organize your paper for maximum impact.
