ACBO is committed to the development of an Online Education program to enable the association to deliver Continuing Education to its members no matter where they are located.
Although nothing can equal the many benefits of face to face education, we believe that there are many topics that can be covered in a web-based format. This education will take the form of professionally produced videos and powerpoint presentations with accompanying learning resources, and integrated assessment quizzes with points available on completion. The programs will be designed around a structured Learning Pathway that allows students to build on existing knowledge. ACBO Members will be able to access these programs through their logins on the ACBO website.
Current projects that are under development include:
- Introduction to Behavioural Optometry,
- Convergence Insufficiency, and
- Practice Management.
The development of content for Online Learning is a time-consuming and costly exercise, and it will take time to build a comprehensive suite of materials.
Project Partner: This program is proudly supported by CR Surfacing Laboratories
