News Highlights from the SPED-TC

by Wayne T. Padgett (SPED Liaison to E-Newsletter)

Wayne T. Padgett There are a number of things we want readers to know about the Signal Processing Education (SPED) Technical Committee activities this year.

We have launched the IEEE SPS Connexions Lens – a collection of open educational resources (OER) that have been evaluated by the Connexions subcommittee of the SPED TC and recommended to you for their high quality. This project can only succeed in reaching its potential if readers like you submit materials to the collection and use those that are available. So please read more about this important project. Note that visits to are up 518% this month thanks to recent article about IEEECNX in The Institute.

In a related project, several SPED TC members are involved in an NSF-supported effort to create a Signal Processing Education Network (SPEN) community around a variety of OER resources for signal processing education. The project is creating a database inventory of existing web resources, tying them to specific topics in the standard textbooks, and then encouraging the community to “fill in the gaps.” You can help populate the database by sending an email describing your favorite online SPED resources.

You will also be pleased to know that the TC is working on proposals for a special issue on SPED in SP Magazine, as well as new SP online video tutorials for SPS members.

Remember that TC elections will take place in October. If you would like to nominate a new TC member (or yourself), then send your nomination form to .

Finally, I hope you will all plan to attend the Trends Lecture on SPED at ICASSP 2011 in Prague. The lecture is scheduled for Wed. May 25, 13:00-13:30 in Club A. Richard Baraniuk will be discussing the projects above along with many other current educational trends, from K-12 to continuing education, and experiential learning and video in the classroom. We look forward to seeing you there!
