Integrating writing and peer learning into the optics curriculum
Author(s): Grover A. Swartzlander; Yvonne Merrill

Paper Abstract

Writing-to-learn principles and peer-learning were integrated into a third-year physical optics course for undergraduate students. By writing about the life and research of optics faculty, student benefits extended beyond the course material. Peer tutors recruited from the class helped enhanced the overall writing quality. Students published their papers on the open-access web.
