We are excited to offer a new online course organized by the International Council of Ophthalmology and taught by Dr. Eduardo Mayorga: Learning and Teaching Critical Thinking.

Critical thinking is the ability that helps us make the best decisions when deciding what to do or what to believe. The ability to think critically is an advantageous skill, and it is key to being a successful professional in the 21st century. This 8-week course is designed to improve your analytical abilities and help you be more impactful in your decisions.

The course is expected to require from 2 to 3 hours a week, depending on the participant's previous experience and knowledge.

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Improve their skills to make deliberate decisions in both professional and personal settings.
  • Facilitate group decision making by presenting an effective model for discussions.
  • Be better equipped to help students develop their own critical thinking skills.

What is included in the course:

  • Audiovisual lectures
  • Selected readings
  • Discussion forums
  • Assignments and quizzes to guide course learning
  • Practice scenarios
  • Performance support documents
  • Help Desk for technical issues
  • Access to the course for 16 weeks
  • A Certificate of Participation, upon completion of the course.
