Section volunteers learn more about the program by attending the TISP training workshops. Links to past training workshops are available to learn more about the training workshops. Once trained, sections can then organize TISP in their local school systems.


What occurs at a TISP training workshop?

Section leaders host Teacher In-Service Program (TISP) training workshops for engineers interested in working with their schools and school systems and in helping to increase the level of technological literacy of local pre-university educators and their students.

During a TISP training workshop participants will:  

  • learn tips and strategies on how to connect with their local educators;
  • participate in hands-on activities;
  • hear from key local educators;
  • receive resources to help them conduct teacher in-service presentations.
