30 August 2010 Implementation stories from the PHOTON PBL project
Author Affiliations +
The PHOTON PBL project developed eight multimedia problem-based learning "Challenges" in optics/photonics in collaboration with industry and research university partners for use in technician education programs. More than fifty high school and college faculty from across the U. S. and Romania attended professional development workshops in 2007 and 2008 to become familiar with the PBL method and the Challenges. Teachers then field-tested the Challenges in their own classrooms. In this paper, we present the experiences and reactions of teachers and students who used the PBL Challenges to teach and learn optics/photonics.
