8 8 IEEE’s Role in Standards The IEEE is a leading global developer of standards that underpin many of today’s essential technologies. –IEEE is a central source of standardization in both traditional (e.g., power and energy, information technology, telecommunications, transportation, medical and healthcare, etc.) and emerging fields (e.g., nanotechnology and information assurance). –Standards are developed in a unique environment that builds consensus in an open process based on input from all interested parties. –Nearly 1,400 standards either completed or under development IEEE Standards Association leads IEEE’s standards activities –The IEEE-SA itself contains nearly 20,000 individual and corporate participants who participate in standards activities. –Draws on the expertise of the IEEE's 44 societies and technical councils.

14 Why Standards Education Is Important Standards education recognizes the key role standards play within the engineering, technology and computing fields. Knowledge of standards can help facilitate the transition from classroom to professional practice by aligning educational concepts with real-world applications. Incorporating standards into the curriculum … Benefits students and faculty mentors as they face challenging design processes Provides tools for use in learning about standards and their impact on design and development 14

15 Standards Education within IEEE Board Structure IEEE Board of Directors IEEE-USA Member & Geographic Activities Publication Activities Publication Activities Technical Activities Technical Activities

16 Mission of the Standards Education Committee Promote the importance of standards in meeting technical, economic, environmental, and societal challenges. Secure and disseminate learning materials on the application of standards in the design and development aspects of educational programs. Secure and provide short courses about standards needed in the design and development phases of professional practice. Actively promote the integration of standards into academic programs. Lead other education initiatives planned jointly by the IEEE Educational Activities Board and the Standards Association. 16

17 Who Benefits? 17

18 Outline IEEE and IEEE-SA Now Standards Education at IEEE The Standards Education Portal Workshops and Symposia Discussion Topics 18

19 IEEE Standards Education on the Web IEEE Standards Education Portal Focal point for delivery of information on education about standards Content is available for free. Developed with the support of a US National Science Foundation Grant

22 Standards Education Tutorials and Case Illustrations Tutorials Free online comprehensive learning modules Guidance on how to assemble and apply standards appropriate to the development of a product or process Representative modules: The Role of Standards in Engineering and Technology The Role of Standards in Cellular Telephony The Role of Standards in Electrical Power Systems Case Illustrations Examples of the applications of standards in the real world Representative case illustrations: Wireless Routers Multimode Mobile Phones 22

23 Snapshot of Tutorial

24 IEEE Mini-Grants and Student Application Papers SEC is offering Mini-Grants to students and faculty mentors Help with graduate and undergraduate last-year design projects that contain an industry standards component $500 USD grants for students $300 USD grants for faculty advisors Projects must illustrate how specific standards were applied to a task in the classroom Students and/or faculty describe how standards impacted the design process Results are published as Student Application Papers

25 Global Standards Search Portal Currently under development, with beta launch planned for first quarter 2011 The portal would allow search for ALL available resources on standards education. The portal would allow for search for all publicly available standards in IEEE Technical Fields of Interest. The Final Product An open access portal for public use Search by key words, topics, and standard numbers/titles For all available educational material For all available standards User may be able to proceed from the landing page to purchase educational material or standards. Not limited to English or English sites, though mostly in English 25

26 IEEE Standards Education eZine!! Currently under development, with beta launch planned for first quarter 2011 Standards education electronic magazine Freely available to the public Worldwide audience of … Educators Students Practicing professionals interested in technical standards and standards development 26

31 Outline IEEE Standards Now Standards Education at IEEE The Standards Education Portal Workshops and Symposia Discussion Topics 31

32 Discussion Topics Are standards and their importance a part of your current engineering course curriculum? If so, at what level? Undergraduate? Graduate? If not, do you think it would be a good idea to introduce the importance of standards into the engineering course curriculum? If so, at what level? What about the focus of such education? Should it be more technical, or should it include the standards development process, including IPR issues? Do you think it is important for students to have an understanding of the industry standards applicable in their fields of interest? Do you think it is important for students to have an understanding of the consensus building process under which industry standards are developed? Do you think that having an understanding of the standards development process is important? 32

33 Discussion Topics (cont’d) Have industry standards been introduced directly into the coursework at your university? If yes, how are they used in the classroom or coursework? Do students actually read industry standards for courses? Does your university have access to industry standards for use in the classroom? What opportunities for research exist in standards and standards education? Is this important at your university? Would your university be interested in internship opportunities in standards education? Were you aware of the IEEE mini-grant program? Do you think it would be helpful at your university? 33

34 Discussion Topics (cont’d) Which of these would be helpful to you in teaching about industry/technical standards: –Access to standards online –Coursework assignments and lectures –Textbooks –Chapter books –Ancillary materials –Web-based materials –Interactive materials –Project-based activities –Case studies online –Tutorials online –Lectures online –Face-to-face workshops or seminars –Independent study –Internships with companies or standards development organizations 34
