Articles in this month’s issue feature laser applications emerging in medicine, summer recruitment events, and photonics technician program development. Faculty professional development opportunities include summer workshops at MPEC and the OPCN meetings at the July HI-TEC conference in St Louis. Last month, I announced the release of OP-TEC educational materials on our dissemination website www.optecresources.org. We are currently working with CREOL/UCF, LASER-TEC and SPIE to also place our materials on their websites. In addition, Brian Monacelli will begin creating online resources of OP-TEC materials, through an NSF/ATE grant to Irvine Valley College. These online resources will greatly facilitate delivery of laser and optics courses to students who are unable to attend traditional classes. I look forward to seeing the OPCN faculty and program directors next month at the HI-TEC Conference!
