Clinical Education Resources

This page will be updated when necessary.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many optometric academic institutions are challenged to use novel approaches in order to provide clinical educational experience to students. ASCO has compiled the list (see below) of online resources that we hope our institutions will find helpful during these challenging times.

This list will be updated when appropriate and we encourage our institutions, committees, special interest groups and other optometric groups to reach out to ASCO’s Director of Communications, Kim O’Sullivan at if you would like your online resource to be included.

Note: Some resources may be unavailable without login credentials

52) Quality Matters Emergency Remote Instruction (ERI) Checklist is a tiered list of considerations, tips, and actionable strategies to enact during an institutional move to temporary remote instruction of classroom-based courses. It is presented in three phases, according to prioritized needs:

  1.    Start Here: Preparing for Success
  2.    Next Steps: Guiding Students and Their Learning
  3.    Longer Term Considerations: Teaching Effectively in a New Environment

53) The QM ERI Checklist is organized into three columns to first provide instructors with recommended actions, then add a brief explanation of the action’s importance and impact, and finally, a column to reference related Specific Review Standards from the QM Higher Education Rubric™, Sixth Edition.

This checklist can be:

  • Used by individual faculty as a prioritized checklist for remote teaching
  • Distributed by an institution, potentially along with additional information and guidance, for internal usage during temporary periods of remote instruction
  • Used as guidance for instructional designers and/or educational technologists who are working with faculty in a rapid development process to temporarily move classroom instruction online
