Part of Academy 2019 in sunny Orlando, Fla.

Registration is open!

This session will provide educators from optometric educational programs around the globe the opportunity to share education philosophies/teaching methods and to discuss challenges facing institutions. The session will begin with a review of the status of optometric education worldwide with an emphasis on strengths and opportunities. Our commitment to enhance and improve optometric education across the world will materialize in a program that strengthens educator skills, supports curricula development and facilitates access to a broad range of educational materials and approaches used successfully by schools of optometry across the world. Breakout discussion sessions will cover topics of common interest and engage participants to discuss, mobilize and advance educational resources leading to improved patient care. Faculty and administrators of optometry programs from across the globe are invited to attend and contribute to this critically significant discussion.

Co-sponsored by the World Council of Optometry, American Academy of Optometry and Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry
