Webinar outline: a short description of the topic of the webinar
TI's Education Technology and resources help students build a strong foundation in math and science or STEM, setting them up for success in the classroom, schools and beyond. Texas Instruments approaches the challenge of employability of young people from schools to university and early career in a holistic way, working at all steps of the education path.
For higher education, the TI University Program establishes an intersection between TI technology, educators and the engineers of tomorrow, bridging the gap between the industry and academic world. Many universities offer outreach programs, summer camps and more opportunities to connect with secondary schools.
TI is present at all levels of education, helping students and educators to explore math and science, at the same time that is raising pupils and teachers' awareness on STEM careers from an early age. The unique international T3 (Teachers Teaching with Technology™) network for teachers, supported by TI Education Technology, makes it possible for educators to share teaching ideas, visions and strategy among the educational math, science and STEM world.
Participants to the webinar will be able to learn more about the study paths at higher education level and how TI supports universities to be in line with the latest technology and industry needs in terms of skills. At a higher education level, European graduate students complain that the knowledge provided at universities does not always match with the requirements demanded by industry. TI's university program works with educators, researchers and students to make sure that they can get access to the latest technologies and demands that industry requires, supporting their teaching and research labs, design projects and course curricula.
