Teacher In-Service Program (TISP)

Q. Why TISP?

Statistics show that science, technology, engineering, and math enrolment in most developed countries, including Canada, is declining. Thus, a group of professional volunteers (TISP members) in this field are working to motivate pre-university students worldwide. TISP activities have recently launched in Canada and have formed a nationwide committee and regional champions that are working coast to coast.

Q. How does TISP help?

TISP aims to reach the pre-university STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educators. In collaboration with the local board of education, TISP arranges workshops for the pre-university educators at different levels. The main objectives of these workshops are to promote awareness of the need for technological literacy and to provide hands-on demonstrations educators can use in the classroom.

Q. How does TISP get support?

TISP is supported by IEEE, the world’s largest professional association. IEEE is advancing innovation and technology excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE has more than 375,000 members in 160 countries.
