Educational Resources
Educational Resources
• Members can join Learning Communities - groups of individuals
who have a shared purpose and a common interest
– search the course database, find a conference, learn about new
technologies
• These Communities provide you with a forum to discuss vital
issues in your technical area, the latest articles and papers,
networking opportunities with others in your field, peer and expert
advice to help you in your job, and so much more
• Because of the rapid changes/development in the expertise areas
of IEEE members, it is essential that members be encouraged to
attend regular seminars, workshops, short courses, and
conferences. Information about these educational activities are
often available through Web sites, newsletters and regular
mailings
