Paper Abstract

Within the framework of its scientific activities, the Optical Society of Tunisia organized the first photographic workshop called Ibn Al-Haytham session. This activity enabled, through conferences, the evocation of the research done by one of the most distinguished and prolific mathematicians in the medieval tradition of Arabic Islamic science. The camera obscura that he thoroughly studied was the theme of a training where more than twenty participants build and used this basic camera. The adopted training approach based on active teaching and learning made possible the achievements of interesting results in spite of the heterogeneity of the group of trainees.
