Education In Optics - Challenges At Hand
Author(s): Brian J. Thompson

Paper Abstract

The theme of my comments is given in the title "Education in Optics - Challenges at Hand". The challenge that we all face is that of defining our field and designing the program content for each educational level. Simply put it is: What do we teach, to whom, for what purpose and to fill what need? I contend that we have incomplete information about all these items.
