IEEE HAC Education Forum

 

One of the educational opportunities now available is the IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) Education Forum – a dedicated, interactive space for IEEE members and staff to gather virtually and learn about topics related to humanitarian activities, sustainable development, and how technology and technically trained individuals can contribute.

The Forum is designed to accompany HAC and SIGHT’s free online educational curriculum which can be found on the IEEE Learning Network (ILN). This is an opportunity for those who take the online courses to discuss and explore the topics further with their peers and skilled IEEE volunteers.

The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) Education Forum, found on Facebook Groups, is a dedicated, interactive space for IEEE members and staff to gather virtually and learn about topics related to humanitarian activities, sustainable development, and how technology and technically trained individuals can contribute.

The Forum is designed to accompany IEEE HAC’s free online educational curriculum which can be found on the IEEE Learning Network (ILN). This is an opportunity for those who take the online courses to discuss and explore the topics further with their peers and skilled IEEE volunteers.

Tailored for busy IEEE members, each module should take only 20 – 30 minutes to complete. However, there are plenty of additional resources available, should one want to devote more time to the topics!

The discussion on the Education Forum will complement and reinforce learning from the modules, providing an opportunity for more experienced volunteers to share lessons learned and a chance for all to ask questions and receive feedback.
