This ICO-Sponsored lab is being held at the American Academy of Ophthalmology's annual meeting in Chicago on October 17, 2016 from 12:00-2:00 p.m. in McCormick Place, Room N227A.

Dr. Eduardo Mayorga is leading the course, with Drs. Ana Gabriela Palis and Matthew Gearinger.

This course will cover the principles, strategies, and techniques of lecture interactivity. The audience will actively participate during the entire course using their smartphones, iPads, or laptops in the role of attendees. They will also learn, as presenters, to set up free software programs and use them effectively, working together with PowerPoint in the same presentation screen.

At the end of the course, attendees will be able to apply different strategies of interaction, such as polling, multiple choice questions, and open-ended questions, using free audience interactive response software. They will be able to apply this knowledge in any presentation room that has an Internet connection.

Note: Each participant is required to bring their smartphone, iPad, or laptop to the course.
