ALOP-active learning in optics and photonics: a UNESCO's program spreading in Colombia through the National University
Author(s): Catalina Ramírez-Gómez; Freddy Alberto Monroy-Ramírez

Paper Abstract

The National University of Colombia is committed to the spreading of the UNESCO’s ALOP program throughout the country by programming a series of workshops (ALOP-NPH) to be held in each of its eight campuses. This huge effort is intended to contribute at a national scale to the training of high school teachers in new pedagogic methodologies. Furthermore, the ALOP Workshop has had large impact in the recently established Master’s program on pedagogy of Sciences, a degree program addressed to middle and high school teachers, which has a current enrollment of more than 400 teachers from all over the country. In this paper we also describe the contributions of the team also ALOP-Colombia to the material and electronic devices used in optical transmission modules and data division multiplexing wavelength.
