Education Forum

It is with great pleasure that the Education Forum Committee cordially invites you to participate in the 2020 IOA Congress Education Forum scheduled for TBC. This is the world’s premier forum for ophthalmic educators. We invite all those who attending the IOA Congress who are currently participating in education of orthoptics student, residents, medical student or other ophthalmic personnel or who are interested in participating in education to attend.  The committee is very excited about how this year’s theme of Blended Learning builds bridges between traditional classroom instruction and infuses technology into delivery of curriculum, instruction and assessment.

Zoran Georgievski Education Forum
In memory of Associate Professor Zoran Georgievski, the ‘IOA Congress Education Forum’ has been renamed the ‘Zoran Georgievski Education Forum’. Zoran was a past Deputy President of the IOA and represented Australia on the council. In 2004, at the Congress in Melbourne, he also introduced the first Education Forum. Since then, the forum has become a permanent part of the Congress bringing together world leaders in the education of orthoptists and providing the profession with a dedicated opportunity to share ideas in relation to the training of health professionals and to facilitate best practice in this area. Zoran was committed to the education of orthoptists and to the progressive development of the profession at a local and international level and it is with great honour that the IOA dedicates this forum to his memory.
