New Edition of the Online Course from the ICO:
Learning and Teaching Critical Thinking

Dear Colleague,

The International Council of Ophthalmology is excited to offer the new edition of the online course: Learning and Teaching Critical Thinking.

The ability to think critically is an advantageous skill and is key to being a successful professional.

This 8-week course is designed to improve your analytical abilities and help you make better decisions. The course is expected to require 2 to 3 hours of time a week, depending on the participant’s previous experience and knowledge. You will have 16 weeks to complete it.

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Improve their skills to make good decisions in both professional and personal settings.
  • Facilitate group decision making by presenting an effective model for discussions.
  • Be better equipped to help students develop their own critical thinking skills.


Learning and Teaching Critical Thinking opens on 23 March 2018. Each week a new module will open. Anyone who registers after that date will have access for 16 weeks from the date that they register.

There is no fee for the course, but proof of purchase of the reading material is required.Learn more about the course materials.
