Development of Generalizable Educational Programs in Laser/Electro-Optics Technology: Final Report.
Hull, Daniel M.
The purpose of the Laser/Electro-Optics Technology (LEOT) Project was to establish a pilot educational program, develop a flexible curriculum, prepare and test instructional materials, transport the curriculum and instructional materials into other educational institutions by establishing relevant LEOT programs wherever they are needed, and to assure that faculties in these schools provide students with requisite knowledge and skills to prepare technicians for useful employment in this field. The curriculum which was developed is intended for use by two-year postsecondary technical institutions. The educational philosophy which was adopted focused on laboratory learning, i.e., teaching principles by doing things with your hands (as opposed to theory lectures or training in simple manipulations or procedures). The report begins by describing the project objectives and detailing the degree and manner in which these objectives were accomplished. All end products of the project are briefly described (curriculum outlines, instructional materials, support documents, and career counseling guides). There is discussion of the roles of the Industrial Advisory Committee, the Evaluation Team, and the Institutional Pilot Program. Following this is a short description of dissemination activities.
