IEEE TISP Week 2018 – Call for Participation

My name is Stamatis Dragoumanos and I lead the Pre-University Activities for IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa) as part of the Region Education Activities Committee.

After the successful TISP Week the last two years, where more than 1250 teachers were trained in 16 IEEE Sections around IEEE Region 8, we are continuing the trend and organizing TISP Week 2018 this year.
It is a great pleasure for us to announce that this year, Region 8 and Region 10 join forces in order to organize a huge educational event spreading across the entire 4 continents, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) is a professional development workshop for school teachers to help them bring exciting hands-on activities to their classroom. More information about the program can be found here: https://www.ieee.org/education/preuniversity/index.html#teacher-in-service-program-(tisp)

The TISP week is a program to conduct teacher training workshops in multiple Sections in the Region 8 and Region 10 within a span of one or two weeks in October 2018.

This will showcase the incredible work being done by our education activities volunteers throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, train teachers to deliver Inquiry Based Science Education sessions and will also help train more volunteers in the local sections. This event will also help our local volunteers deliver a public service through training teachers.

We plan to conduct workshops in as many sections as possible and would like to invite your Section to organize a TISP workshop for school teachers during this TISP week.

The following rules will apply for organizing a workshop as part of the TISP week:

1. A minimum of 30 school teachers will be trained.
2. The event will last a minimum of one or a maximum of two days long.
3. The event dates will fall within the TISP week dates.
4. As our funds are limited, we would like to request the local Section to fund the organization of the event. IEEE TISP Week 2018 can only fund the lesson plan materials* for the workshop and would be grateful if the Section can fund the rest of the local costs of venue, etc. The funding amount is up to USD 250 per workshop and it will be reimbursed after submitting the reimbursement form.
5. A member of the local organizing committee will participate in monthly TISP week organizing committee online calls.

We will help your local organizing committee plan an effective agenda for the workshop.
