The development and availability of technology can revolutionize ophthalmic education, helping teachers and students connect efficiently and economically.

The Committee on Technologies for Teaching & Learning Continuing Professional Development seeks to explore new and emerging technologies for ophthalmic education and provide technical guidance for online courses and other learning experiences.

This is led by Chair Eduardo Mayorga, MD.

Online Courses
Organized by the ICO, these courses cover the online application of adult learning principles, how to plan and build courses, how to select and use the best software tools, and how to put these new skills and information into practice. Upcoming courses are announced in the Center for Ophthalmic Educators. Current courses include: 

Technology for Teaching and Learning

  • A blog on how to teach.
  • Practical tips and information for educators on subjects like conceptual maps, adding narration to PowerPoint presentations, synchronous e-learning, Wikis, and teaching evidence based medicine.

Atlas of Ophthalmology

  • An online multimedia database, free of charge and edited by specialists in the field.
  • The Atlas of Ophthalmology is officially endorsed by the ICO, and we encourage you to support and use the Atlas.
