Training & Educational Opportunities
An integral part of IEEE HTB’s strategic mission is to offer educational resources and training to equip IEEE members and volunteers to impact their local communities through sustainable development activities.
With better-prepared, skilled participants, every activity has a greater positive impact.
HTB & IEEE SIGHT have developed an educational curriculum on Humanitarian Technology and Sustainable Development at IEEE that is housed on the IEEE Learning Network.
The following are already available:
- Module 01: Introduction to Sustainable Development
- Module 02: Multidisciplinary Perspectives in Humanitarian and Sustainable Development Activities
- Module 03: Community Engagement in Sustainable Development Projects
- Module 04: Humanitarian Technology for Sustainable Development
- Module 05: Sustainable Project Design
- Module 06: Project Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation
Tailored for busy IEEE members, each module should take only 20 – 30 minutes to complete. However, there are plenty of additional resources available, should one want to devote more time to the topics!
IEEE HTB Ad Hoc Committee on SIGHT Best Practices Lecture Series
The HTB Ad Hoc Committee on SIGHT Best Practices is cooperating with a number of IEEE organizational units and SIGHT Groups to organize a series of lectures on best practices relevant to engagement with local communities. Topics include:

- AVOIDING A GRAVEYARD OF SOLAR PANELS: HOW TO MAKE SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEMS SUSTAINABLE
- GOOD PRACTICES FROM ROBOTICS FOR EQUALITY AND DEMOCRACY PROJECT TUNISIA
- EMPOWERING WOMEN FOR SUSTAINABLE CLIMATE RESILIENCE
