Development of Articulated Competency-Based Curriculum in Laser/Electro-Optics Technology. Final Report.
Luzerne County Community Coll., Nanticoke, PA.
The project described in this report was conducted at the Community College of Luzerne County (Pennsylvania) to develop, in conjunction with area vocational-technical schools, the second year of a competency-based curriculum in laser/electro-optics technology. During the project, a task force of teachers from the area schools and the college developed courses and competencies for both secondary and postsecondary laser/optics programs. The task force also developed materials and equipment lists, supervised the layout of the laboratory in a new Advanced Technology Center, created a competency-based catalog of proposed courses, and implemented the program. Most of this document consists of the curriculum materials, including competencies for four courses in laser/electro-optics technology, recommendations for equipment/software selection, and recommendations for articulation. Attachments include a list of task force members, task force data and recommendations, the Advanced Technology Center brochure, a program brochure, specifications for two laboratories, and information on use of a laser laboratory for technical physics.
