OCCP1098: Teaching Occupations and Performance

2021 unit information

Whether in working in partnership with one person or a group of people, teaching and learning is a fundamental, collaborative process applicable to all areas of occupational therapy practice. The unit applies principles of evidence based practice in relation to teaching and learning in occupational therapy. Students will develop proficiency using a range of processes to facilitate people's engagement in activities and routines in everyday life. In doing so, students will answer the following questions: How do I help people learn to perform activities and develop new routines where they live, work and play? What specific methods do I use to foster learning within different contexts? How do I best consider the learning process for persons with or without health conditions?
