Thanks to the Optical Society for hosting our series of optics/photonics education webinars this academic year! Recordings of the webinars plus resources for teaching can be found in our Photonics Teaching Resources pages.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we will be holding a virtual workshop in July 2021 to introduce problem-based learning to educators and introduce our new PBL Challenges (case studies). Contact us for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This site describes a quarter century of work by the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) and its partners to improve secondary and post secondary STEM education with funding from the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program (NSF ATE). The PHOTON Projects, a series of three curriculum and professional development and laboratory improvement projects in optics and photonics, engaged middle and secondary school teachers and college and university professors across the U.S. The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Projects have developed a collection of authentic real-world multimedia Challenges(case studies) with industry partners in the areas of optics and photonics, sustainable technologies, and advanced manufacturing and introduced them to teachers worldwide.
