Information for Contributors Editorial Committee
The Role of the Editor-in-Chief

is, in collaboration with the UniServe Science office, to facilitate the production of CAL-laborate International by:
  • establishing a timeline for the production of each issue of CAL-laborate International;
  • issuing a call for papers through the Regional Editors and Discipline Editors;
  • liaising with the Reviews Editor to identify material for review;
  • coordinating the distribution of papers for refereeing;
  • ratifying the recommendations made on any paper submitted for review and publishing; and
  • determining when sufficient material is available for a printed issue of CAl-laborate International.
Professor Roger Lewis
University of Wollongong

Roger Lewis is a physicist with a long-standing interest in the application of appropriate technology in the learning and teaching of science. In the first round of national teaching development grants he received funding to develop video introductions to undergraduate laboratories. A later grant was used to develop computer-based tutorials. A recent interest is in audience response systems ('clickers'), for which he received support in 2006 from the University of Wollongong teaching and learning fund. These innovations have been described and analysed in workshops, meetings such as UniServe Science, and publications such as Computers and Education, and the American Journal of Physics. Professor Lewis is also an accomplished classroom teacher, as recognised by a Vice-Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Contribution to Teaching and Learning, The NSW Minister for Education and Training & The Australian College of Educators Quality Teaching Award, and a Carrick Citation. Lewis is a member of the American Association of Physics Teachers, the Australasian Association for Engineering Education, and the Australian College of Educators.

Professor Lewis is an active researcher in the area of terahertz science and technology. (The terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum falls between the infrared and microwaves.) He is sole chief investigator (CI) on a 2006-2008 Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project, 'High efficiency terahertz emitters'. He is lead CI in a 2007-2009 ARC International Linkage project, 'Advanced materials and structures for terahertz science and technology'. He was lead CI in two recent ARC Linkage Infrastructure and Equipment grants that set up terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (2004) and terahertz two-colour mixing (2006) facilities at Wollongong. He has been invited to speak on candidate terahertz emitters at the International Conference on Optical, Optoelectronic and Photonic Materials and Applications, London, July 2007. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Physics and a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society.

Professor Lewis is also active in academic governance. He was Head of the School of Engineering Physics at the University of Wollongong 2002-2007 and is currently the Chair of the Faculty of Engineering Research Committee.
