Accessibility to virtual access has prompted the gravitation towards digital learning in medicine. The development of tele-education webinars and conduction of didactics with online platforms has changed our continuing education (CE) programs and orthoptic fellowships. In this age of digital communication and virtual meetings and examinations it has become necessary to present and understand clinical research and educational training virtually in health care. Our webinar will focus on how speakers can present research material in an effective manner, how orthoptic programs are teaching via webinars or on-line learning platforms, how to organize lectures and scientific research for orthoptic fellows/other learners on a virtual platform, how to effectively present research and how to moderate/participate in a virtual presentation. We will have virtual video links to review Zoom controls online at orthoptics.org. You will find videos on how to transfer hosts, share a screen, use reactions, layouts, and using breakout rooms that will be helpful prior to the webinar session.

Upon conclusion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  1. Present material and scientific research in an effective manner to a virtual audience.
  2. Understand the functions of online platforms for webinars to present research and information.
  3. Know how to moderate and participate in an online platform.
  4. Know how to organize materials for online learning for fellows, residents, and other learners.
