Ophthalmic Educators Letter

June 2013

The third edition of our online Web-Based Teaching course has just come to a close. The course covered 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.

Upcoming editions of the Web-Based Teaching Course will be announced in future issues of the ICO Ophthalmic Educators Letter.
