Ophthalmic Educators Letter

November 2013

Join us for the workshop, “Lecture Skills: How to Create Engaging and Educational Presentations,” at the World Ophthalmology Congress® (WOC) in Tokyo, Japan, April 2–6, 2014. The Lecture Skills workshop will be held in both English and Japanese as part of the World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium (WOEC) series during the WOC.

Lectures remain the most frequent strategy for delivering knowledge in medicine. A lecture’s effectiveness can be greatly improved if learners are involved and presentations are appropriately designed and delivered.

The objectives of this workshop are that by the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to define the structure of a lecture, apply the principles of slide design to improve learning, and add interactivity to lectures.

We look forward to seeing you at the World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium during the WOC2014 in Tokyo!
