Designing a curriculum about electron microscope based on disciplinary method for graduate students
Nanotechnology has developed in all fields of human life and many research institutes and universities teach this major in their departments. The aim of this research was to design the educational objects and contents about identifying and characterization of nanomaterials by electron microscope for undergraduate students. Research is applied and descriptive. In this study the tool was an objective-content researcher made table. Ten books from reference books and electronic sources were selected as samples for design the syllabus. The objectives and content was developed according to disciplinary method. Finally, researchers propose 4 objectives and 10 contents about electron microscope learning for undergraduates. The main objects are: An introduction to nanomaterials, a review of optics and lenses, an overview to the optical microscope, an introduction to Electron microscope.
