This issue of OPEN contains several excellent opportunities for professional development:
- MPEC summer workshops on “Laser Materials Processing” and “Fundamentals of Photonics”
- NSF Funded Mentoring Opportunities
- Community College Innovation Challenge CCIC
- OP-TEC Winter and Spring Webinars on Available Faculty Resources
- Photonics West conference
The 2018 winter-spring term will culminate with many of your students graduating and entering the world of work. Helping these students find the best jobs is of primary importance. OP-TEC has recently completed a new “best practices” monograph on Successful Student Job Placement that is described, and will be available early next month.
Have a wonderful and memorable holiday!
