At IEEE, we know that faculty at many universities are suddenly being asked to offer courses exclusively online in order to continue to support the needs of your students in this difficult time. It can be challenging to create additional resources that are effective and immediately available.
As you plan to adapt your engineering and computer science curriculum and library resources to support a distance learning environment, IEEE is offering a series of webinars to provide informative and applicable tips and tricks to help with those plans.
Below are the links to register for upcoming and recorded sessions. All are free to attend and we encourage you to share this information with your colleagues.
Upcoming Webinar, June 10, 2020, 01:00 PM EDT: What’s New @ IEEE for Libraries: Helping Libraries Drive Innovation Forward in Uncertain Times
As the global health crisis forced academic institutions and corporations to quickly transition to support distance learning and remote work, organizations moved to adapt as quickly as possible without the benefit of the usual planning time and resources typically needed to optimize such a transition. In this webinar, we’ll discuss tools and resources available from IEEE to help your organization continue to successfully transition in this environment and be prepared to drive innovation forward despite current and future challenges.
As school closings around the world have forced academic institutions to quickly transition their curriculums to support distance learning, educators moved to adapt as quickly as possible without the benefit of the usual planning time, resources and tools typically needed to optimize such a transition. In this webinar that covers the roles and perspectives of a librarian, professor and the publisher, we’ll discuss best practices, ideas, tools and resources needed for an institution to successfully transition a e-curriculum to better support distance learners.
With many people now working from home, it is more important than ever that strong leaders keep the workforce engaged and moving forward. Join IEEE Educational Activities and Rutgers Business School Executive Education to learn how to help your future leaders bridge the gap between business and engineering as they prepare for growth into management roles. The presenters will discuss and offer tips on how certain corporate challenges can be overcome with modern-day solutions to help you cultivate and grow your company’s emerging talent into leadership roles.
With the spread of COVID-19 many universities abruptly switched to remote learning modes, effectively doing whatever they can do to have some educational presence for all online classes. This webinar is about optimizing the learning experience for students now that faculty has had some experience with distance learning. Discussions will include strategies to keep students interested, how to build easy student engagement mechanisms, new opportunities that this type of teaching provides, tools and resources freely available to build faculty’s skillsets, innovative assessment measures to replace heavy reliance on traditional exams, and ways to prepare faculty to teach effectively in this new world.
As instructors, a quick shift to online teaching means a myriad of concerns, from technical to pedagogical. However, little attention has been spent helping students shift to becoming better online learners. This webinar will outline considerations for helping students switch to online learning modalities and construct productive ways to learn in these unusual circumstances. Our discussion will cover how to think about student needs, how to anticipate issues, how to be clear about expectations, and where to find resources.
In 2013, Arizona State University’s (ASU) Electrical Engineering program became the first bachelor’s level ABET-accredited engineering program to be available 100% online. In this virtual event, Stephen Phillips, Professor and Director of the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at ASU, discusses online delivery strategies used in the program as well as highlights lessons learned and specific techniques that can be used by faculty looking to convert to online delivery.
On-Demand Webinar: Using eLearning to Support Distance Learning
At IEEE, we know that faculty at many universities are suddenly being asked to offer courses exclusively online. As you plan to adapt your engineering and computer science curriculum for a distance learning environment, eLearning courses can be valuable tools to supplement instruction and engage students. In this free webinar, our speakers share tips and techniques that can help you supplement your curriculum and keep students learning.
