Author(s): Angus Macleod

Paper Abstract

As the rate of technological change accelerates, continuing education becomes more important than ever. This talk is an account of a successful continuing professional-education course on optical coatings. The course emphasizes understanding and is a mixture of formal lectures and practical computing. Some of the techniques used in the course are described along with some general observations about student capabilities and continuing education in general.
