IEEE teacher in Service Program 2011

  1. 1. Teachers In-Service ProgramWelcome Teachers!!! TISP, College of Engineering Chengannur-arjun
  2. 2. We are developing!!! But… Education has the – power to transform society in a single generation; – provide children with the protection they need from poverty, exploitation and disease; and – give them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential Number of out of school children decreased from 25 million in 2003 to an estimated 8.1 million in 2009 The main challenges are: – Reaching some 8 million children not yet enrolled and ensuring retention of all students till they complete their elementary education (Grade 8) – Very outdated theoretical syllabus – Global rate of Teacher Absenteeism is 20%. In India, 25% – Ensuring education is of good quality2 12/27/12
  3. 3. Need for Improving Quality of Education No of Engineers in India > China, Korea (on the rise ) India has just 214 per million – South Korea = 1435. – Japan = 765 – US = 750 – China has 340. D Doctorate degrees were less than 1 per cent of graduate engineering degrees in the country. 30 per cent of fresh engineering graduates are unemployed even one year after graduation, Only 17.45 percent of technical graduates in the country are ready to be employed! – Rest 82.55 per cent??3 12/27/12
  4. 4. Hear from you! What do you think about – your school, – your students, – challenges they face, – challenges you face? What can we together to improve the quality of students?4 12/27/12
  5. 5. How can we improve the Quality Some tangible school-related factors – Class size – Separate learning spaces for each class – Child-centered teaching-learning practices – Use of classroom relevant teaching-learning materials – Continuous assessment of students understanding – Experimental Learning – Teacher knowledge – Regular evaluation of teaching-learning practices – Continuous professional development for the teacher – Time devoted to teaching by teachers – School meals – Health programmes, such as de-worming – Availability of clean drinking water5 – Separate toilets for girls 12/27/12
  6. 6. S.T.E.M. Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Co-relate study of engineering by linking core subjects Focus on providing Quality Education from High School Orient School Students towards Engineering STEM has been receiving attention across the globe and is expected to increase6 12/27/12
  7. 7. About IEEE IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. Non-Profit organization Members over 4,60,000 across 170 Countries Provides learning opportunities within engineering. A dedicated board for improving the education Activities – EAB – Improved focus on India7 12/27/12
  8. 8. EAB- Pre University Programs Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) Lesson plansIEEE has developed several lesson plans to connect students ages 8-18 with the world of engineering. These hands-on lessons reinforce key engineering concepts while building students’ critical thinking, teambuilding, and problem solving skills. IEEE STAR TryComputing.orgGlobal computing education resources for pre-university teachers, school counselors, parents, and students. Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)EPICS is a program that organizes university and high-school students to work on engineering-related projects for local area humanitarian organizations. Presidents ScholarshipEstablished in 1999, the IEEE Presidents’ Scholarship recognizes a deserving student for an outstanding project that demonstrates an understanding of electrical engineering, electronics 8 E-Scientia 12/27/12
  9. 9. TISP – Teacher in Service Program Provides a forum for IEEE volunteers to demonstrate the application of engineering concepts with teachers. Helping teachers bring exciting hands- on engineering lessons into their classrooms. Helps students to explore their syllabus and have a different approach to studies. Approximately 3,200 pre-university educators have participated in an in- service program, impacting almost 3,50,000+ students worldwide.9 12/27/12
  10. 10. WHY TISP Students gets excited when they do than they read or hear TISP aims at engaging students on Hands-on The number of students who created models and number of models created are the direct metrics of the success of the program Initiates the spark to try, create and innovate Empower volunteers to work together with schools around them10 12/27/12
  11. 11. TISP initiates a chain reaction11 12/27/12
  12. 12. About the workshop and follow up The workshop will have some hands-on activity that will be done together as teams of teachers and engineering students For follow up, the volunteers and teachers are requested to keep in touch Volunteers will be happy to visit school Students can visit Engg. Colleges during events and project exhibition. Identify some 4-5 experiments and lets together develop training aids for them Our efforts touches success if each student12 makes a hands-on model by himself 12/27/12
