Online and in-person educational program

About the TLC

The TLC (Teach. Learn. Connect.) Initiative is IACLE’s online and in-person education and communications program which complements IACLE’s existing educational activities to support members through their contact lens teaching career.

The TLC Initiative includes:

  • A full program of live and recorded webinars on a global, regional and national basis to help educators and students adapt to new ways of teaching and learning
  • Our teaching online platform – IACLETOP – IACLE’s central point to access all IACLE’s online programs, resources and teaching materials
  • Opportunities for industry to connect with educators and students worldwide
  • Communications providing new information to support all sectors during the pandemic recovery, including IACLE’s first social media campaign
