Open education for eye care (OEEC)
The International Centre for Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is creating a series of OER courses in public health eye care which are relevant to health care workers around the world.
By the end of 2019 we will have released 7 courses and ~500 separate OER materials. We are also working with faculty in several countries to adapt the OER for use in specific local contexts, for example the University of Cape Town has adapted and embedded 2 of our courses into eye care modules in their Masters of Public Health. And the College of Ophthalmology of Eastern Central and Southern Africa in Kenya has adapted one of the courses for release as a free CPD course in Eastern and Southern Africa.
