ICO Web Based Teaching Course: Application Period Open Through March 15

The ICO is pleased to host our third Web Based Teaching Course April 15-June 3, 2013. This course will give medical educators the skills needed to create professional presentations and to integrate modern multimedia teaching practices into their lessons.

Lessons will cover the online application of adult learning principles, how to plan and build presentations, how to select and use the best software tools, and how to put these new skills and information into practice in the classroom and through the web.

All educators interested in developing or improving their e-learning teaching skills will benefit from the course. Enrollment is limited, and will be determined in part by the needs of the individual and region, as well as the level of impact that a particular educator may have. Please apply early, the application deadline is March 15.
