Chen, Huai-Yi; Wu, Chien-Ming; Lai, Chiung-Hui – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Prior studies indicate that students experimenting with characterization of optical planar waveguides use expensive ready-made prism couplers without clear understanding about construction of the entire optical measurement system. This paper presents a cost-effective modified bright-mode prism coupler that helps students learn…

Johnson, Aaron W.; Blackburn, Max W.; Su, Magel P.; Finelli, Cynthia J. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper presents evidence demonstrating ways in which flexible classrooms (which have movable tables and chairs that can be rearranged into different layouts) afford active learning. It highlights the quantitative increase in active learning that occurs for one instructor and discusses how the affordances of the flexible classroom…

Gamo, Javier – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: There are many on-line resources available to learn about optics and photonics, but no assessment tools exist to evaluate the learning achievements. This paper presents an assessment framework whose validity has been proven on a course with over 70 engineering students. Background: There is evidence that on-line resources complement…

Bernhard, Jonte; Carstensen, Anna-Karin; Davidsen, Jacob; Ryberg, Thomas – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: This paper reports engineering students ' practical epistemic cognition by studying their interactional work in situ. Studying "epistemologies in action" the study breaks away from mainstream approaches that describe this in terms of beliefs or of stage theories. Background: In epistemology, knowledge is traditionally seen…
