THE USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA AS A METHODOLOGY IN DIFFERENT SUBJECTS IN THE OPTICS AND OPTOMETRY DEGREE AND ITS IMPLICATION IN THE EVALUATION PROCESSES

Introduction:
The aim of the Optics and Optometry degree is to train highly qualified specialists in the management of visual health. In order to achieve this, the students acquire the knowledge, abilities and skills needed to carry out eye examinations. The use of new technologies applied to teaching Optometry, allows us to teach and interact with the student by showing different clinical cases and situations that at times may be difficult to understand from a purely theoretical perspective, and by seeing real video recordings the students are better able to understand the subject matter.
The aim of this communication is to show how the student can be made aware of the interconnection of the content amongst the many subjects which make up the degree, whilst developing skills in communication, logging data and documenting clinical histories.

Methodology:
The use of video recordings of different situations related to vision and the vergence binocular system, produced by the students themselves, promotes teamwork and the teaching-learning process, with support and guidance given to the student at each stage of the process by the teaching staff.
This proposed learning methodology, which allows for the evaluation of proposals as realities that can be encountered in the professional working day, is developed in three of the degree subjects, (each course begins and ends with the subject involved).

Results:
Learning outcomes can be summarized when the student is capable of:
• Measuring, interpreting and treating the different accommodative and binocular vision disorders found with optometric techniques.
• Use clinical and instrumental protocols in the associated exploration.
• Decide which tests should be used depending on what is found.
• Examine, diagnose and treat visual disorders with special emphasis on differential diagnosis.
• Apply new technologies in the field of Optometry.
• Demonstrate the ability to work in a team, learn the terminology of the profession and carry out work in a convincing manner.

The aim of this proposal is that optics and optometry students can see the interconnection of content between the different degree subjects and the professional social reality. Furthermore, relationships between students, and between the students and the teaching staff, are encouraged by means of collaborative work on the different subjects involved in this project.

Conclusions:
The use of new technologies applied to teaching allows us to teach and interact with students, showing them many different clinical cases and situations which at times they may find hard to understand at the purely theorectical level. By being able to see and prepare real cases they gain a better understanding of concepts.
This type of teaching encourages the students to participate more, allowing the teacher to gather continuous feedback from the students' reasoning and learning.

New methodologies require more preparation time and more dedication on the part of the teacher to provide feedback to students concerning their work. This must be taken into account in our work as university professors in order to continue learning and developing new educational teaching methodologies.
