Session Highlights: WOEC Sessions at WOC2018

Posted on February 25, 2018
Topic: Education, World Ophthalmology Congress

Join us for the World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium (WOEC) series of symposia and workshops spotlighting a variety of educational techniques. The WOEC sessions are designed for a diverse audience, from trained educators to practicing ophthalmologists interested in education.

As part of the WOEC, the course “Beyond the Lecture: Using Concept Maps to Promote Deep Learning of Medical Knowledge” will cover evidence supporting the use of mind maps to stimulate deep learning. Participants will have a hands on experience on how to create concept maps and how to teach this skill.

The case study “Complex Cases of Problem Residents: Discussing Prevention and Remediation” discussion will equip educators and program directors with the appropriate tools to feel confident applying effective remediation plans to deal with a variety of difficult situations.

Funding for the 2018 World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium sessions is provided in part by Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. Funding for the keynote luncheon of World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium is provided in part by the Alcon Foundation. We thank all of the supporters of the International Council of Ophthalmology's Teaching the Teachers Initiative.
