Author Affiliations +
This paper describes different methods used in the classroom and lab to teach photonics technology students to think. When students transcend from the classroom to the work environment, they must be able to think and problem solve without a teacher, instructor, or professor holding their hand during problem solving. There are many ways that can be used in the classroom to teach students to think. The methods discussed in this paper range from using thought provoking questions during lecture, to "full blown" project based learning methods, such as "Problem Based Learning".
