IEEE Education Society
OUR FOCUS
The IEEE Education Society was founded in 1957 as
the Professional Group on Education of the Institute of
Radio Engineers. It is a worldwide society of thousands
of professionals dedicated to ensuring high-quality
education in science and engineering. Our members
engage students each day, research and propose new
theories in learning science, develop new learning
technology, and innovate classroom practice. Recent
examples of contributions from our community
members include:
* the new IEEE Standard 1876 - a standard for
networked smart learning objects for online laboratories
that defines methods and techniques for offering
laboratories as a service (LaaS) over the web,
* the new ABET Cybersecurity Engineering Program
Criteria, which help to guarantee that any
undergraduate cybersecurity engineering degree
program meets accepted standards,
* and special issues of IEEE Transactions on Education
(Vol. 61 Issue 4, 2018) and IEEE Latin American
Learning Technology Magazine (manuscripts being
accepted for publication in 2020), focused on learning
science to help ensure success and equity in education
for all students within the socio-culturally diverse
student body.
We welcome your contributions to our community and
hope you can benefit from the dialog the society helps
to foster. If you are already working as an educator-or if

you are a student considering a future as an educator-
then we encourage you to join us if you do not already
belong to our Society. We hope you will consider us part
of your professional network as you progress through
your career.

OFFICIAL FIELD OF INTEREST:
The official IEEE Field of Interest Statement for the
Education Society is the theory and practice of education
and educational technology involved in the effective
delivery of domain knowledge of all fields within the
scope of interest of IEEE.

MEMBER BENEFITS:
Membership in our society includes electronic-format
copies of IEEE Transactions on Education and IEEE Latin
American Learning Technology Magazine (IEEE-RITA).
You can also elect a fee-based subscription option to
the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies if you
don't already have access through IEEE Xplore. Plus,
we provide online learning opportunities as webinars,
open educational resources, or MOOCs. You also can
participate in face-to-face learning, networking, and
presentation opportunities at member rates at chapter
events and five premier international conferences.

A Glimpse into Our Professional World
Pedagogy: the theory and practice
of education
Learning science: multidisciplinary
research into how humans learn
Learning engineering: using the
results of learning science to build products
and experiences that help humans learn
more effectively
Learning technologies: tools that enable
information delivery and assessment of
students, including networks, applications,
learning management systems, and
computer-aided learning software

THE BRIDGE

Learning management system:
large-scale software products that deliver
curriculum, track student progress, assess
students through testing, and deliver grades
and feedback to students

Flipped classroom: a technique that
requires students to study material before
class and then apply their knowledge
immediately through problem solving
in class

Curriculum: how material to be learned
is organized and presented as modules
across the timeline of student engagement
in learning

MOOC: Massively Open Online Courses
are web-hosted courses designed for
the masses and delivered remotely
to sometimes millions of people
simultaneously

Active learning: integrating studentcentered activities into learning experiences
to engage and involve students with the
material they are studying

Project based learning: a form of
active learning where large projects
form the basis of discovery, knowledge
application, and solution

COMPSAC and HKN - Perfect Together
IEEE-HKN had a strong presence at the
2019 COMPSAC held 15-19 July in Milwaukee, WI, USA. COMPSAC is the IEEE
Computer Society Signature Conference on
Computers, Software, and Applications. It is
a major international forum for academia, industry, and government to discuss research
results and advancements, emerging challenges, and future trends in computer and
software technologies and applications.
IEEE-HKN Mu Nu Chapter President Sandro Sartoni
and Chapter Vice President Davide Bisso held
a workshop, explaining to participants what an
HKN chapter does, an overview of programs, and
the impact chapters and members have on the
community, a university and their peers. Nancy
Ostin, IEEE-HKN Director, presented the Outstanding
Chapter Award to the Mu Nu Chapter of Torino,
Italy, and highlighted the number of workshops the
Chapter held, the community service hours it logged,
its growth, and the fun and community spirit that
resulted from having HKN at Mu Nu.

Also during the conference, Eta Chapter member
and Faculty Advisor for Mu Nu, Dr. Paolo Montuschi,
officiated a Professional Member induction
ceremony. Dr. Eddie Custovic, Dr. Edmundo Tovar
and Dr. Dejan S. Milojicic are the newest members
of HKN's Mu Nu Chapter. Milwaukee also served
as a meeting place for the Editors-in-Chief of The
Bridge. Dr. Stephen Williams and Dr. Sahra Sedigh
Sarvestani joined Nancy Ostin to plan the exciting
and informative issues to be produced in February
and May 2020.
HKN offers a hearty thanks to the IEEE Computer
Society for its partnership and help in making all of
this possible.
