IACLE makes resources available to all educators

The International Association of Contact Lens Educators (IACLE) is offering all educators access to online resources for remote teaching during the global Covid-19 outbreak.

The IACLE Case Reports Series is now in the Free Resources area of the IACLE website.

It provides 23 illustrated, interactive case reports with multiple-choice questions, for non-members and members alike to share with their students. This resource is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean and simplified Chinese.

The 2013 version of the IACLE Contact Lens Course (ICLC) comprises 10 modules in 55 parts in PowerPoint format and is also available under ‘Free Resources’ as a student aid.

The latest version of the course – ICLC2020 – will be launched next month and is among a wide range of online resources for IACLE members. The IACLE Education Team is currently developing a series of narrated lectures as additional support for its members worldwide.

IACLE president, Dr Shehzad Naroo, commented: “While many countries are facing a lockdown situation and most universities have closed already, it is important to ensure that the academic year is not wasted for our students. IACLE is making available some great online teaching resources for all educators to share with students in these unusual global circumstances.”
