Teaching and Learning Across Contexts

This course provides students with advanced knowledge and skills in teaching and learning for multiple settings and roles in which an occupational therapist educates or mentors clients, students, or staff. The course begins with adult learning theory that students then apply to patient/client education (both individuals and groups), teaching occupational therapy students in academic and fieldwork settings, developing continuing education programs, and mentoring/teaching staff in clinical settings. Students engage in authentic teaching and learning experiences, consistent with their plan of study and program goals.
