  • I’d like to start by stating three key points. These key points help to motivate the rest of the presentation. Ask for input from audience. Validate. Then move to EDUCON slide where Areas nicely capture important themes.
    (advance slide) First, all engineering educators are working toward goal of helping students form a better future society. Engineering educators should continue their own education about teaching so that they constantly improve their teaching skills. High quality teaching empowers students. From EDUCON website “modern learning approaches must account for social and cultural aspects as well as the individual’s profile including task and role-based aspects, interests, knowledge state, short-term learning objectives and long-term career goals.” (advance slide) Second, the pace of technology growth has made the world a much smaller and interconnected place. Engineering students should be exposed to global social context so that they can gain an understanding of worldwide needs.
    (advance slide) Finally, continuing education ensures lifelong growth of personal skills and social understanding. Engineering educators must also participate in continuing education so that they are best prepared for the challenges ahead.
    EDUCON is an excellent example of this. EdSoc is a great place to work on this.
  • The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization. The organization has three guiding principles:
    advance slide: The first is to advance innovation so that society continues to move forward. Without innovation we can never hope to solve the problems that face us. advance slide: The second is to ensure technical excellence by providing standards and training to the community of practicing engineers in the organizations fields of interest. advance slide: The third is to benefit the worldwide community by working to establish relationships and communities of peers around the globe. advance slide: The organization has a very broad set of practicing engineers because the fields of interest are engineered systems that use electricity to do work. From aerospace to oceanographic vehicles, electrical power to telecommunications, biomedical systems and robotics, computers and information security, the list goes on and on.
  • IEEE has grown to be
    Standards to enforce quality design practice, ensure interoperability and marketability, global
    Networking millions of people each year
  • Ask the audience why a society for teacher’s should exist. Get their responses and validate them.
  • IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
    The following information provides an overview of IEEE offerings and services.
     
    IEEE Quick Facts
    IEEE has:
    more than 430,000 members in more than 160 countries, more than 50 percent of whom are from outside the United States;
    more than 120,000 Student members; 
    333 sections in ten geographic regions worldwide;
    2,231 chapters that unite local members with similar technical interests;
    2,516 student branches at colleges and universities in 80 countries;
    790 student branch chapters of IEEE technical societies;
    432 affinity groups - IEEE Affinity Groups are non-technical sub-units of one or more Sections or a Council. The Affinity Group patent entities are the IEEE-USA Consultants' Network, Graduates of the Last Decade Young Professionals (YP), Women in Engineering (WIE), and Life Members (LM).
    IEEE:
    has 38 Societies and ten technical Councils representing the wide range of IEEE technical interests;
    has more than 3.5 million documents in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, with more than 8 million downloads each month;
    has more than 1,500 standards and projects under development;
    publishes approximately 170 transactions, journals, and magazines;
    sponsors more than 1,300 conferences in 92 countries while: 
    partnering with more than 1,000 non-IEEE entities globally;
    attracting more than 419,000 conference attendees;
    publishing more than 1,200 conference proceedings via IEEE Xplore.   
    *Data current as of 31 December 2013. This information is updated annually.
  • Peer Networking
    meet others that share your passions
    form collaboration teams to work on projects
    build relationships between your group and others
    share what your successful strategies with others
    be recognized for the work you do
  • Continuing the initial focus on industry/academia cooperation, publications, conferences. EdSoc has evolved since founding in 1957 but stayed true to initial aims of its founders.
  • Be sure to note some of the challenges engineering educations are facing worldwide. Include:
    Bologna process in Europe
    Wordwide accreditation bodies and skill set recognition
    Humanitarian work in developing countries
    Technical literacy in the internet era
    Population decline in developed countries and the shift toward smaller employee sets
