Subjecting optics and photonics text materials to a morphing process
Author(s): Darrell M. Hull; Arthur H. Guenther; Leno S. Pedrotti

Paper Abstract

At present, previously developed curriculum materials designed to teach the technology of lasers and electro-optics for two- year postsecondary students are becoming outdated. In an effort to update technology-oriented curricula for the new and emerging applications of photonics, the authors are proposing a systemic process that would facilitate the interaction of educators in an innovative electronic format. The morphing process is NOT a listserve, but an established set of curriculum materials in laser/electro-optics that in print contain over 1900 pages and an excess of 1300 illustrations, all placed on the World Wide Web that would allow access to faculty only. The faculty will be allowed to make peer- reviewed changes to the curriculum via an e-mail submission process and submit ideas for lecture and laboratory techniques that will be hyperlinked to specific parts of the curriculum. The curriculum and the process will be available to optics/photonics faculty world-wide as recently proposed in a 3-year project with the U.S. Department of Education.
