A Message from José M.F. Moura, 2016 Technical Activities Vice President (March)
February 26, 2016
Members of IEEE Technical Activities are advancing many of the newest and most vibrant technologies of electrical, electronic and computer engineering. This year, we’ll be focusing on strategic discussion to ensure that IEEE’s Societies and Councils continue to stay at the forefront of innovation and resources offered to our diverse group of members.
How can we bring TAB into the future?
We’ll learn more about new distance learning technologies that are being increasingly adopted, such as broadcast classes, flipped classrooms, and others. By examining how to develop courses that colleges and universities across the world may decide to use in their own programs, we may greatly help educational institutions in areas that may otherwise lack STEM course resources.
We’ll focus on activities in locations such as East Africa and Southeast Asia that have been less prioritized in the past, in our pursuit to become a truly global community of engineers with representation throughout the world.
We’ll better engage and empower under-served segments of our communities through facilitating networking opportunities and creating easier access to the resources they need. We’ll reach out to new audiences and advocate for those that have been historically under-represented.
We’ll continue to provide highest-quality technical resources and encourage our volunteers to participate. By so doing, we’ll create opportunities and strengthen bonds among all facets of the global technical community.
I look forward to working with you this year as we strategically strengthen TAB for years to come.
