TISP Week is a Region 8 program is focused on spreading the educational benefits on the field of engineering, while making the teachers and students to work collaboratively, by implementing interesting and innovative lesson plans.

TISP Week 2017 will be happening  the week of 1-9 of December. During this week, TISP Workshops will be organized around Europe, Middle East and Africa by the participating Sections. Each workshop will train a minimum of 30 school teachers

About IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community through IEEE’s highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.

IEEE, pronounced “Eye-triple-E,” stands for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. The association is chartered under this name and it is the full legal name. To learn more about the association’s name, for more information please read the History of IEEE.


TISP stands for the ‘Teacher In-Service Program’ and is a professional development program aimed at helping teachers bring exciting hands-on engineering lessons into their classrooms. IEEE volunteers are trained to conduct TISP workshops. These trained volunteers – known as TISP Champions – then take the program to their local areas and train school teachers.

The aim is for the school teachers to eventually implement these lesson plans in their classrooms on a regular basis and for the local TISP champions to keep in contact with the school teachers to provide support.
