Active and interactive teaching based on exploring forefront topics in information optics

Paper Abstract

Information Optics (i.e. Fourier Optics) is a compulsory professional course in the teaching program for juniors in the field of applied physics at Beijing University of Technology. Various methods are applied to information optics teaching in order to obtain satisfying teaching effect. Active and interactive teaching method based on exploring forefront topics was proposed and put into practice, especially for teaching “holography and holographic technology application” section of the course􀀀in which the teaching activity was not restricted to classroom any more. A visiting to the exhibit of forefront production of holographic display was introduced as an episode in the teaching. The process of teaching was designed elaborately to an interactive activity between the teacher and students, and to stimulate students to cooperate. The teaching practice proves that the active and interactive teaching method is much favorable by students and successful in information optics teaching.
